All is Well at Beau-coop

We were told to expect to lose one or two chicks. I am happy to say that all is well at Beau-coop. All chicks are still alive and kickin’. It’s been about a month since we started this journey and we have learned so much! Here are some of the things we’ve learned:

  • Brown eggs are not better for you than white.
  • Brown eggs cost more because the chickens eat WAY more LOL… Something to keep in mind if you’re trying to keep costs to a minimum.
  • Brown eggs do have SLIGHTLY more Omegas but very minimal.
  • White, blue, green, brown or pink eggs doesn’t matter when selling- as long as they are fresh.
  • Chickens start laying eggs in 4-6 months. 
  • Chickens must always have water.
  • In order to have organic, non-gmo eggs all you have to do is feed them organic non-gmo food. 
  • Chicks only need 6 sq in and chickens need 1 sq ft… So if you have a coop that is for 6 chickens, you can just add a run (most manufactures sell these.) We will talk more about this in our next post.
  • Be careful introducing new chicks, even if they are only a few days apart. 
  • Zoe, Beau’s French Bulldog, LOVES chicken poop.
  • Once you start, it’s hard to stop LOL.

Beau is obsessed with their feet LOL
Check out her beak, they are really changing!
