Red Sex Link Hens

Red Sex Link Hens

We received our Red Sex Link Hens on January the 11th. It was still really cold outside so we kept them in the office for the first six weeks.

24 Chicks packed in a tiny little box. We moved them to a larger box with heat, food, and water.

At three weeks, they were ready to go outside. We moved them into an unoccupied rabbit hutch with a heat lamp. This was their home for the next three weeks.

Finally, at six weeks old we were able to move them into their “permanent” home. This is the chicken coop constructed out of cattle panels and 2×4’s. ¬†They’ll stay in here for a week, and then get to free range during the day.

We purchased these red sex link hens from Strombergs and were very happy with the quality of the chicks. Despite freezing weather and enduring postal transit, out chicks arrived happy and healthy.

The girls are 8 weeks old now and looking good.
