The Chickens Have Arrived

     My daughter and I are raising 52 meat birds this year.    We got them yesterday and everyone made it throught the first night.   If what I read is correct in about 10 weeks they should be ready for dressing.    I am running 2 heat lamps as they are in an outside building with out heat and it was 49 degrees last night
  This is them in there new home for the next couple of weeks
This is what they have become in one week.    They got a bad start due to the feed we were sold was the wrong type it bound them up and we lost four got the correct feed and the eat well
