Maybe I should just put the meat pen on the layer feed?

Oh and I have Red Broilers, Marans, Delawares, and soon Katy's secret mix wink in the meat pen.

And I agree cat food here is WAYYYYYY more than chicken feed! My cats get an 11 pound bag for 30.99 epth (If you can afford it I HIGHLY recommend it, WAYYYY better than Science Diet, it's called Wellness.)

lol


I'll check it out - do chain stores like PETCO sell it? And, where are you getting your organic chicken feed? Thanks!

Yes Petco sells it, but it's more expensive there. I get it from a small pet store and it's MUCH cheaper.


I am getting my food drop shipped a pallet at a time from an organic company in North Cali. All the San Diegan chicken peeps are splitting the pallets with me. smile

You have mice?
I think the winter must have killed our mice, haven't seen any since last summer. The coyotes haven't even come back yet but we are seeing a few rabbits so it won't be long before coyotes return.

Well I thought I would update youz guy'z on the progress of the last 2 of 3 of last few hatches, these are already in outdoor brooders and doing nicely. There are a few disappointments in color as to be expected with any hatch and will not be bred back with my pure cornish standards, but may serve as breeding stock for my meat bird project later on. One group is a hatch that is 7 weeks old and the other group is 3 weeks old, I have 2 more hatches that are still in indoor brooders and saw pic's of them a few post back.

Standard White Cornish, Dark's & White laced Red Cornish Breeder..........If you don't have Cornish you don't have Chickens. Breeding the best, to the best.
As good as a few and better than most, What You'll Tolerate in your flock is what you'll get.

Hi Al,
The legs and feet look good in the pictures, any with obvious leg problems?

These are all pure bred Standard Cornish, they don't have leg problems most associate with the Cornish X, Standard Cornish have tree stumps for leg's and or known to be the strongest stoutest leg's in the Biz.
