I have begun my soy free feed/goat milk batch of meaties. I received 50 CX cockeral chicks from Eagle Nest Poultry on Thursday. They had a pre warmed 5'x9' brooder waiting for them. Had one chick DOA and lost a second one after day one, since then no losses and I don't see any chicks that look weak. For the first week I am going to give them 3 pounds of soy free feed mixed with 1 pint of a combination of goat milk and raw milk Kefir per day. So far chicks are very active. At the end of each week I am going to get an average weight and log it. I am also logging the amount of feed and milk I give each day. By next weekend I hope to have them in the tractor out on the pasture. I am very anxious to see how these birds grow and also if they have a different taste on this feed regiment. I will get some week one pics taken tonight, and post them soon.
