My second hatch is coming right along. I have 5 new chicks and expect about 13 more by morning. This plus the 9 that are now 6 weeks old will replace my older layers that were sold to augment another guys flock.
Total for second hatch was 11. That mean 20 new and 17 one year olds. I am really thinking about several groups of cornish x for meat now. A neighbor wants to swap me some bunnies for some birds. I will continue to branch our as much as possible.
