Out of the 19 rescue cornish Xs left on my doorstep I ended up with 18, after one died on the second day. Not long ago my DH culled 9 extra cockerels for me. I would have liked to keep them all, but there was no way I could end up with a peaceful flock with that many cockerels. The rest are now 14 weeks old. There are 8 pullets and 1 cockerel, to go along with my layer flock of 12 pullets and a cockerel. Everyone gets along fine. In fact, one of my silkies refuses to have anything to do with the other layer chicks, preferring the company of the meaties. Ollie, my meatie cockerel, is sweet and quiet. He has a wonderful crow, but rarely uses it. One of the pullets is blind, so she gets extra attention. All of them get around fine, love to dustbath, but most haven't caught on to catching bugs yet. I am waiting to post pics of them until I can bathe them. They had a watermelon feast the other day and look pretty yucky. I just wanted to share, for those that have offered me support.
