The Chicks are here!

They arrived in two batches due to shipping complications. I ordered 250+ Cornish Cross but after a few losses I'm down around 240. The first batch is schedualed to go to pasture the 28th.


  1. That is great! It's sad to hear that you have lost a couple. We got our chicks about two weeks ago-50 of them. They're a heirloom breed combination that our neighbor recommended. They are supposed to grow nearly as fast as the Cornish Cross. We have not lost any yet, Praise the Lord! I hope you have great success!
    p.s. I guess we will be slaughtering at about the same time then. :)What is your date for that event?
