    Hello everyone! Thanks for viewing!

    I just set 12 Cornish-Cross Hatching Eggs under Bisket my Broody BO, in a small tractor.

    I am looking for any and all advice I can get on growing out meat birds. This is my husband and I's first meat bird project. Can anyone suggest a good resource for information? (other than trolling the threads on BYC, of course)

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!!

    I think everything you need to know is in this forum somewhere. :) Some of us have individual threads chronicling the birds from chicks arriving in the mail to butcher weights, and those might be helpful. (And you can start one of your own now!) If you have specific questions, be sure to ask, someone here will know. Good luck! -Wendy

    Awesome idea! I will do just that!!!! I have a day to myself today, I will back up to the beginning and start a thread!!! Hopefully I will glean some good advice, but at the least it will be fun for me to document this adventure.
    Thanks Wendy :)
