    Well my plan was to only get 25 cockrels and have them shipped at the begginning of September. So I just got off the phone with central hatchery and it turns out they have a minimum of 50 chicks and their last hatch is next week!!! Me being very impulsive went ahead and ordered 50 chickens that will be here next thursday morning! My fiancee is at work right now and i'm a little nervous about his reaction. I personally find it pretty funny and think he will get over it.

    I'm pretty excited and and my fiancee really didnt mind [​IMG] , I will keep you up to date on them. The guy at the hatcery said they take about 14 weeks to get to butcher weight. I'm a little worried about the summer heat though.

    It has been incredibly hot here this summer and my cornish x have not really had a problem with it.
