Batch 1 is just about ready. I'm going to eat every chicken in this room. Well. Not the Barred Rocks.
So we are at a little more than 7 weeks for Batch 1 of the Creepy Meats. A few of them are about to go to glory soon. Very soon. It depends on the weather but I'm expecting to have chicken dinner in my future.
The Barred Rocks we got with Batch 1 will soon go to live in the chicken house. But that is really going to freak them out so I need to get them used to the idea. We'll be having "How to be a Real Chicken" training over the next week. I've brought in some experts - some of the laying hens - to provide instruction.
You can pick out Batch 2 - the larger ones - and also the Buff Orpingtons.
Batch 2 and 3 are still in the brooder. They are doing great and peeping along. With the warmer weather they will have to be moved to a bigger pen and start getting out into the real world.
Happy Tuesday everyone! How are your meats? Creepy?
