I ordered 50 male cornish x broilers and 25 misc roosters (not broilers) from mt healthy due to ship Sept 30th. Has anyone ordered broilers this year from mt healthy with or without the 25 extra roosters? How did the birds do? Mortality rate? Dressed out weight? I normally get my broiler chicks localky from my 4h guy, but he hasn't been able to hatch any more out for me and I'd been waiting since July for my broilers. He told me to order from a hatchery, but didn't give me any recommendations. I looked at several hatcheties and none could ship me broilers until the end of october, which really doesn't work for me. My freezers are empty NOW. This is why I decided on mt healthy, is shipping date and thatI could get all male cornish x broilers. when I did my meat chickens this past spring I only did 10 cornish x broilers. 2 died of heart attacks. I ferment their feed for them their entire lives. I have my feed custom milled for me at 23% protein non gmo organic gluten free non medicated. I have a brinsea ecoglow 50 brooder heater plate instead of a red heat lamp. After they are off the heat lamp they will be moved outside to a penned up area so I can restrict their feed to 1 x a day. My last batch of cornish x broilers dressed out at 24 lbs EACH at 12 weeks old on this feed with 20% mortality rate. This time I am adding vitamins/electrolytes to their water to see if that helps with leg problems and mortality rate. I have never done so many meat birds at once before and I'm a bit nervous. I currently have a mixed flock of 34 chickens, 2 turkeys and 14 ducks wish me luck.
