Week 7 – Separation of Birds into 2 Rooms

Its now week 7, and time for us to separate the birds into two separate rooms to increase space available for each bird. This was part of the plan as running two brooders is a hassle with no specific benefits.

Now there are 1,215 birds in each house of giving about 1.13 sq feet per bird.  In the new house we mixed the husks with lime, as well as sprayed a disinfectant over the husks & the room during the course of 2 weeks before the move.
