    We placed our order for 20 Cornish x. Wish us luck, we ordered with a couple of other families so I hope they get here safely even with the heat! [​IMG]

    Good luck! [​IMG]

    Where are you planning to raise them? In a coop? Movable tractor/pen?

    They can be smelly critters, especially this time of year, so make sure you have plenty of ventilation.

    after a lot of thought we are going to keep them in a stationary run with coop. I have too many kids and neighbor kids around to have a big pile of chicken droppings anywhere. We are just going to put a heavy litter down in the run, give them some sod, and feed and let em'go! we are thinking about a hoop coop after they are feathered out.
    we are looking for a big drum to compost in.
