    Final set up.. I have decided to use the birdcage as it is more predator proof and allows more air flow.. Sorry about the dust.. I was moving alot of hay!

    I'm getting 100 Red Sex link pullets and 50 Cornish X st run on March 3! What is the difference in red and black sex links? Is it just the color?
