Just received my 50 (sent 51) cornish X straight run -per their suggestion, from schlechthatchery.com today! They shipped out on tuesday, and received today thursday (Indiana). ALL ARRIVED healthy. Total billed to my card was $59 for the 50- with shipping included!! that would make them $1.18 ea... NOT BAD PRICING AT ALL!!! Will let you know how they progress. -UPDATE 5/21: Started with 51- 3 died in night, cause likely due to cold/trampling. Lesson Learned. 48-birds remaining -UPDATE: 5/22: Started with 51- 1 died in night. 47- remaining -UPDATE: 5/23: Started with 51- 1 died in night. 46- remaining. I feel the feeder was cause of death. I have one bird that is walking sluggish, and expect him to pass as well. -Update: 5/24: Started with 51- 1 died late evening yesterday, 45-remaining. Twas a runt! I have another in the sick ward right now and I do not expect him to live. He is definitely a runt as well.... I noticed 1-with a partially pasty butt. but the others looking fine. Brooder has been completed last night and the chicks moved over to their new home for the next 2-weeks (will move em out by week 3!). -Update 5/25: Still have 45! The flock is holding ground. Chose one for random weight @ 3oz. Spotted 2-with pasty butt, no complete blockage though.The 50-area eating about 6-cups per day at this point of chick starter. Feeding around the clock. -Update 5/26:45-holding tight! I forgot to turn the brooder light back on last night, and was fearing the worse when I opened the door. Nope, they are doing well, and looking better than ever. -Update 6/20: 43 birds in the tractor. Average weights are 2.0-2.25 range. I have blown through 200lbs of feed (plus a bit more) at this time. Conversion rate is still right on target. We are about 80% feathered at this time. I feel that feathering is a bit behind the average, and probably relative to their lower weights/growth as well. Chart added today to show weight progress and feed consumption -Update 6/25: 20-dead birds and 4 more with injuries!! We had a dog attack today.
