Just to get feed.....honest!! Well...what do I hear...cheep cheep cheep translated: COME GET US!! So, I wander over....so glad DH is NOT with me...and they have cornish cross chicks. YES!! I wont have to order them. AND, they are #1.49 each!! CHACHING! So I ask the lady for a box...and she is watching me count out 25. The conversation went like this. HER : These are straight run chicks, you DO know that right?" ME: Oh, yeah, thats ok...wont matter much. HER : I hear they are great egg layers. ME: No, these are meat birds. They will be butchered in 7 or 8 weeks. HER : Why so young? Dont you want eggs? ME: ( wanting to her) These chicks are cornish cross....they are not egg layers, persay. They are meant to be butchered at 8 weeks. She gives me this look Oh well...I at least got mine...and will go back in a few weeks and see if they have any more of these " great layers"
