Look who is here! New arrivals. Our winter meats showed up just in time. We are clearing out the turkey house and making space for these meat chickens which should be ready in January or so.
This little guy is so fresh he still has a bit of shell on his back. Now that's fast delivery.
Are we crazy to get winter meat chickens? Nope. We find it's easier to keep them warm in winter then to keep them cool in our scorching how summers. Plus... we are out of chicken. Aside from a few spring roosters and two more monstrous meats from this summer that need to be harvested - we'd be looking at next June if we waited until spring to get chicks. I just can't wait that long for fried creepy meat.
We got them sips and settled. They all arrived vigorous and happy. Thanks Meyer Hatchery!
And now.... we have some turkeys that are just dyin' to come to supper.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
