Wow, today I got 10 Cornish Rock chicks from TSC. They are my first meat birds. In the past years we have probably had 100+ laying hens and are now running a group of 150 (4 weeks old). I am used to them in the little chick phase, cute, curious, and a bit nervous. Open the brooder lid and they run! Stand in their pen and they will slowly come over to peck at your boots. The broilers seem lazy. They plopped down in front of the feeder and took a nap. When I open the brooder they barely looked up. LOL! What a difference... I always have called my chickens "our ladies" but I think these are "my nuggets..."
