Meat Birds

We picked up 28 meat birds at Farm & Home today. We combined them with the 28 layers in the brooder. It's crowded in there, so we'll have to move the meaties outside in a day or two. It's supposed to rain all weekend, but we'll try to get the burned coop repaired in the next couple of days. They'll live there for a couple of weeks while we either build them a tractor or we make them an area in the old garage.

We weighed them as soon as we got home. The average weight is 4.5 oz.
