If using the "Mama heating pad" and "red broilers" from Purely Poultry how soon do you think I could order here near Green Bay weather wise.
The Red Broilers are supposed to be 6-7lbs in 9-10 weeks, seem like less work than Cornish Cross, no feed restrictions, better feathering for the cold tolerance?
I would probably start them in the unheated garage for a week or two to give extra wind and chill protection, before moving them to a tractor on the garden.
I was thinking of ordering for early to mid February.
Reasonable or not? Another factor might be count, thinking 15-20. I have an just shy of an acre and neighbors for now so I can't get too carried away.
