I got a phone call this morning from the post office and Peggy said Cathy your babies are here, so I throw my clothes on go to the post office and find 50 very alive and loudly chirping cornish cross rocks well they didn't send 50 they sent 52. they are eating and drinking without any help from me. I did not even have to show them where the water was or dip their little beaks at all. they look wonderful. my other ones that I got from hoover hatchery a week ago(just 6) have almost trippled in size in 1 week. we weighed one 2 days ago and it was already almost 7oz and it wasn't even a week old yet. these things are going to be huge. This is my first time trying to raise them so wish me luck. (P.s. they stink) no matter how much I clean out the brooder they poop it full in a matter of minutes!!!
