    The fatty mcpatties are gone. Well not gone, they're in the fridge on ice b/c i'm too tired to finish them off tonight. Spent the day at Perfectly Polish's helping to build a coop and getting help to process birds. Thanks to PC, PP and Drumstick for the moral and physical support. I'm not as bothered by "losing" the birds as I think my brain is trying to make me. I did a really good job seeing the birds as food as they were growing up. It's a little bothersome to know they're "gone" but they're really not. I guess i'm just dealing with tired mixed emotions right now.

    You did a great job, especially for your first time on your own birds, it'll get easier. You gave them the BEST life possible and I'm sure if they could they would thank you for it. Your a wonderful chicken mommy [​IMG] How are the chicks doing? Will you be back in 2 week, that's when we should be getting the cornish crosses.

    Yeah, I'll come back in two weeks. Not sure that I'll take cornishes...depends on how the fatties taste for me. If you guys need some help that I can possibly provide, let me know. I don't have carpentry knowledge, but I've got decent strength.
