    Broiler- RedStraight Run chicks. Take any or all of them, FOR FREE.

    E-Mail [email protected] for more information/contact

    50 Broiler- RedStraight Run day-old chicks were purchased from WELP hatcheries in Bancroft IA. They arrive on December 5th and will be at the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul MN until December 15th (ten days).

    Feed was purchased at Fleet Farm

    No antibiotics in the feed

    The chicks were needed for a study on food taste aversion. No harmful substances will be fed to the animals. Chicks will have only one 5-minute interaction with the distasteful food.

    The Red Straight Run: This is a meat type chick favored for it's darker skin. It will get into the 3-4 pound range in about 8 weeks. The Red Broiler tends to be a bit bigger than the Black Broiler, but smaller than the White Cornish Rock Broiler.

    We are looking for family's/farms anyone to adopt them so we don't have to euthanize them.
