I was milling about the feed & seed, as I am known to do on a Thursday morning, and they just got in a mega-shipment of Cornish Xs for $1.75 a piece. OH MAN! Since my husband and I are on this personal challenge where we are going to try living strictly from our own homegrown food for three months (JulyAugSept), I thought, I better get some meat birds TODAY. It was like a sign from God. I mean, I was there, they were there, and it was destiny. So I bought 10. They get nice and plump, right?... not all skinny like my Leghorn cockerels.
