Chicka wow wow!!!It's my birthday!!!
First Run of Cornish Cross Meat Birds and Super Excited! - Page 586
Have my first 30 CX!!! They are 6 days old and almost everyone have already started developing the bald spots on bellies and back sides. Other than that growing fast and healthy. I started off with 31 down to 26. First few days had some weaklings i guess. Any thoughts on the bald spots
My guess is they are growing too fast and the feathers are actually being pushed further from each other by the rapid weight gain. Slow them down....
Of course, slow them down is my answer to most CX problems.
I have a few toads growing in the inside pen, I will try to get pictures in a day or two. I want to see what they will look like before I show the world. The chests are starting to pop out a tad.
Tell us the weight you get, I am betting an average of 7.9 pounds dressed.....
Here are the toads, hatched Friday and Saturday.
Bert the third is in here somewhere!
