This is an interesting story, kind of stressful, going to a hatcher doing the right thing. We got our first batch of cornishx chicks in April . As they grew we noticed some weren't as big. Normal, right? Well on butchering day they all seemed small. While preparing to freeze the birds we figured out there was next to nothing on the birds, in fact we threw 3 carcasses away. Soooo, I called the hatchery and they figured out we got the wrong birds. We think we got game hens and deleware..... But McMurray refunded all our money. Being a newbie isn't always easy. Don't be afraid to ask questions! Does anybody else have any stories? Our second batch arrived the same day we found out about the first and so that soothed the $$$ wounds because those little buggers ate as much as the bigger birds would!
