    Hi I'm Matoe [​IMG]or Matt [​IMG] a want to be Costa Rica chicken farmer in the USA.
    This is my first try at raising chicks,granddad had lots of yard chicks but that was over 40 years ago. So I built a ckicken tractor [​IMG]and then bought a tractor to pull it. Then I ordered 32 birds from Meyer all arrived alive because I drove 160 miles round trip to pick them up a day early they had all ready been hatched 2.5 days. My flock consist of Barred Rocks, Silver Laced Wyandottes, Rhode Island Reds and Buff Orpingtons a very nice mix to start with. Got a good count and at 2 1/2 weeks we have 34 healthy birds. [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG] Have a big strange chicken living in the trees in the back yard. He has no pasty butt
