The girls were so surprised and excited! They stayed in a little tupperware for a short while before we decided they needed more room. So we had a sweet little set up for them in a large tupperware while they finished out their days indoors. I thought I was going to absolutely HATE having them in the house, but honestly they didn't bug me one bit. I fell in love with them so fast. They weren't hard to clean around and their cute little chirps were so sweet and never once got on my nerves.
They are so low maintenance, we hardly have to do anything with them now that they are grown and the most we had to do with them as chicks was monitor the heat in their little box, and get them fresh water frequently. Now they have a feeder that Kasey built outside that holds like 25 pounds of chicken feed, and a 5 gallon bucket of water with water nipples on the underside so they always have fresh water. Their coop was built by our shed in the backyard. We put a fence behind it and to the side we put a gate, The hen house is actually inside the shed under the tool bench. Kasey built cabinet doors underneath, a window on the exterior side, and a door to get in and out from the outside complete with a ramp. We made the mistake of putting way too much straw down at first so when it rained or the sprinklers came on it would soak it and the bottom layers wouldn't dry. We didn't want it to mold so we had to empty it all out and lay it out in the sun on a tarp and put a very thin layer back in their coop and hen house. It's been perfect ever since. We still plan on building off the back of the shed so they have a place in the winter to get away from any cold breeze/wind that may come through their door, and to eventually get power out there so that we don't have to run an extension cord from the house to the shed.
It didn't take long for them to grow! They will start laying eggs around 20 weeks old.
Here they are perching on Kasey's ladder.
