Gah!! I had this long post and pictures of my flocks and my tabletcrashed! Gah!!
my svart honas pullets in the snow this morning.
my ayam cemani pullet from greenfire farms and a couple of my CL or cremettes
my white bresse are cold, my roo has a bit of frostbite.
And of course the cx meaties and the misc mystery heavy breed roosters they sent. I got them oct 1.. they are almost 8 weeks old today.
here is the mystery breed rooster mt healthy sent with my order.
I have list 2 of the mystery breed chickens. 1 was a runt, 1 looked like he had gotten crushed.
1 cx neatie died from shipping stress, 2 drowned, 1 had a heart attack last week and 2 died 3 days ago while I was out of town. 1 looks from a heart attack, the other smooshed from puppy piling as we got a pretty good couple of snows recently. Overall I'm pretty happy with how this batch is going.
I can get meat chicks from Whiting farms on the western dlope of Colorado which have a very good reputation for meat birds that fon't have the problems of the cx meaties. I'm going to give them a go soon.
