    My Temporary Tractor
    Hi, thought I might in introduce myself. I am new to chickens. My twins
    brought home 2 from the first grade. I don't know what kind they are. Tyson
    gave a bunch of eggs and incubators to the first grade to hatch as a
    project. My tractor/brooder is a scavenged shopping cart holder from Dollar
    general. I built a plywood box with a hinged roof, put a light in and cut
    the legs off. We put the chicks in, they seem to be pretty happy with there
    new home. My kids are having a ball with them. I am going to try and post
    some pics of the first brooder and my second one.

    I was thinking the same thing. Look at the legs. Look like Cornish Rocks or the likes to me.

    How are your chickens doing? I'm concerned that if Tyson donated the eggs to the school, they might be from a commercial genetic breed, a type that grows fast and fat but doesn't live long.
