Getting Ready For 7,000+ Little Chicks!
Chicks Are Coming!
In a few weeks, our little farm will be full of little fuzz balls running all around! See below how we care for thousands of little chicks!
As I type this email, it is 45 degrees outside and snow is melting! It may only be mid-February, but the warmer weather has us dreaming of Spring. Spring on the Farm is one of our favorite times. We have thousands of little yellow fuzz balls running around in our brooder! It also brings us sunny days spent in the pastures with all our different animals! As we prepare for Spring, we wanted to take our customers along with us. Our goal is that you feel part of the process so that you can feel confident in the food you are consuming. That starts with baby every March.
March 14, we will welcome our first batch of 7,600 chicks for 2023! It is hard to even put into words how much excitement surrounds welcoming our new fuzzy friends. Chick arrivals mean *all hands on deck* in order to get the chicks from the hatchery trays into our brooder. We are incredibly blessed to be on a weekly route for the hatchery which means we get chicks 12 hours after hatching! That is incredibly fast!
For context, a few years ago, our chicks shipped through USPS. They could be 36+ hours old by the time we received them at Joe’s Farm. The first 72 hours are the most important in lives of our chickens. The sooner we can get the chicks into a warm stress free environment, with clean water and feed, the better! Being able to partner with our hatchery has made an impact on the welfare of our flock. We are always looking for ways to improve the welfare of our precious animals.
We look forward to welcoming these amazing creatures onto our farm in just over a month! Make sure to follow along with our social media pages or here on our newsletter to watch these little chicks grow.
