Helpful Hints for Light Breeds

When mixing light and heavy breeds, it is almost a must that the light breeds (leghorns) be beak trimmed as the heavy breeds are slower feathering and this causes the light breeds to pick on them. Contrary to popular belief, feather picking is not only caused by a lack of any particular type of mineral within their diet; it is frequently an environmental problem such as too much light, too much heat or too crowded

It is very important that you birds feel comfortable.

  • It is not recommended to have large window exposed to the south as excessive light is a major factor causing cannibalism within your flock.
  • Never use white lights during the brooding period.
