8 weeks ago our hatchery order arrived! 25 meat birds and one surprise black chick! you can see the insane difference in their size even though they are both only 8 weeks old. we call her Black Beauty and she has graduated from the brooder in the garage to the backyard chicken area. she’s free ranging with our other 4 mature hens – and while they are all still warming up to the idea of her, I think they will all get along swimmingly.
we are harvesting the meat birds in a week.
oh, and look at that beautiful coop Grant is building 😭 i’m so proud of him.
