Well we did it. We took the plunge and ordered 50 FR. They all arrived safe and healthy. Needless to say, I was very impressed. We have been raising chickens for a few years now, thanks to a school project. I must say our entire family is hooked on chickens. My husband has been wanting to raise meat chickens for our family for a while now but I am just such a softy. Yep, I was the last one to jump on this adventure wagon but I promised I would give it a try. My 7 year old daughter, better known as the "Chicken Girl" assured me that we could do this. Nothing like a little arm twisting.
My son built us a great pen for them and now he is going to build a couple of tractors. He is such a creative 13 year old. I love to watch his creative juices flow. I think I am his biggest fan! Here are a few pics. I will try to continue to document our adventure over the next few weeks. Feel free to send words of encouragement. I am sure I will need them as the weeks progress.
