    I am in search of one or two Black Australorp Pullets to introduce to our young flock., they must have been vaccinated such as they come from the Nursery. I have a "rare " bird from McMurray to trade or will buy outright. One of our Black Giants died early on and I love the black colored hens in the mix so would like a few more. Our Pullets are over 2months now and very healthy.

    Must be in Western MA or Northern CT Thank you!

    haha, too bad... timing stinks!

    Hey, I was reading your blog... (it's raining and my son has visitation with my ex today, so I have nothing better to do than lurk BYC) but I was reading your thing about the cornish rocks... I think it's great raising some of your own meat, and agree 100% about factory conditions for store bought meat... it's good to let them live happily before they are killed... and I believe cornish rocks usually die from heart problems around 12 weeks anyway?? they're born to be eaten, and it's best they have a good life first [​IMG]

    It has certainly been a learning process! We kept one of the girls for now, but looking at the organs and such they are certainly not healthy [​IMG] I think we will pass on raising them for a while, BUT if things get very bad in a few years with conumption and demand outweighing resources at least we know we can do this. It certainly showed me I can self sustain anyways [​IMG]
