    Mt. Healthy rocks! rocks big!

    i ordered 100 cornish x and the bonus 50 fryer surplus chicks. can i just say...182 healthy, sprite and active (NO DOA's) arrived at my local post office the day after they hatched. that is awesome service!

    so here is what 182 crazy fuzzies look like...( i am on my way to TSC to get more feeders, waterers and brooder lamps...)

    thanks! got another lamp in and two drinkers, and a ton of feeders. they are all toasty and chipper! will separate into three brooders in three days when they can be on wood chips and then everyone will have their own lights, etc. their feet are so warm![​IMG]

    most of the chicks are pale yellow, but there are a few pale chipmunks in there...maybe not Comets? any clues?

    now you all have to order more![​IMG]
