Ok, so I stopped by Tractor supply and picked up 6 cornish x chicks to raise for meat. Usually I just slaughter my extra roos which is only a couple a year, and they're anything from silkies to heritage breeds so I don't bother offing them until 15-18wks.
This is what I got going on now, I have several broody silkies who've been sitting on nothing for weeks. I'm going to move one out into my spare 'grow out pen' and give her the cornish to raise? This way I don't have the stinkies in the house long. :P
Anyways have success doing it this way?
I'm going to take pictures and see how this goes, because if it goes well we're going to keep doing this. I would like to have about 12-15 birds a year and keep the freezer stocked.
