I got my second batch of meat birds. Hopefully I will have better luck this time. I ordered again from Hoover's and again I got a box full of happy healthy chick's. I ordered 9 straight run jersey giants, 8 red Ranger and 8 rainbow Dixie again. This is the older chick's checking out their new brooder mates. The older chick's no longer need the heat and spend all day outside in the broiler pen. I pull them inside every night because I do not think they are ready to spend all night on the ground...need to fashion a run of some sort between the future tractor and the broiler pen. I do not dare allow them out free yet I know from experience that my farm cats are brutal. My current solution is to transport them in a large rabbit cage (I have them trained to come in at sight of food dish) but that will not work with 25 birds, especially as large as those birds get. I need to get a better picture, but my meat birds are only a week older then their broodmate layers.
