I'm taking the plunge... Or, maybe I'm just getting my feet wet. I ordered 15 (the minimum) today from JM Hatchery, for a ship date of July 16. I also ordered 50 "regular" meat chickens from Townline Hatchery which ship (or was it hatch?) on the 14th. So, this will be the ultimate comparison, right? 65 chickens (plus whatever extras) in my 10x12 tractor... I'll probably thin them out at 8 weeks, then let the others grow-out to 10 weeks, and let the colored broilers grow to about 12 weeks.
