    I just hatched my first LF Dark Cornish chicks from my trio this week. I set 4 eggs and 3 hatched.

    Two are just beautiful.

    One is kinda scraggy looking and needed a boot to help with foot problems. He's already on the cull list. I don't want to perpetuate the foot problems if they are genetic.

    I am only keeping breeders and eating the rest. I am doing weekly hatchings from my trio until the breeding season is over. Wish me luck!
