Raising Chicks to 8 Weeks


7 member families bought 3-4 chicks each from BioFuel Oasis and raised them until they were 8 weeks old.  They learned about chick breeds and how to care for them and built their own brooders to house them.  At 8 weeks old, 3 families kept their chicks, and 5 of the chicks were placed in the EBI Coop.  The rest of the chicks were donated to SoMar Farms in Petaluma where we got to spend a fun day learning about the ranch, swimming in the pond and having a BBQ.
