My Temporary Tractor

Hi, thought I might in introduce myself. I am new to chickens. My twins
brought home 2 from the first grade. I don't know what kind they are. Tyson
gave a bunch of eggs and incubators to the first grade to hatch as a
project. My tractor/brooder is a scavenged shopping cart holder from Dollar
general. I built a plywood box with a hinged roof, put a light in and cut
the legs off. We put the chicks in, they seem to be pretty happy with there
new home. My kids are having a ball with them. I am going to try and post
some pics of the first brooder and my second one.

How are your chickens doing? I'm concerned that if Tyson donated the eggs to the school, they might be from a commercial genetic breed, a type that grows fast and fat but doesn't live long.
I was thinking the same thing.  Look at the legs.  Look like Cornish Rocks or the likes to me.
