Broiler Chicks Arrive Friday
We will be getting 125 broiler chicks in this Friday. A lot of folks are hesitant to start chicks this time of year, but we have had good success with them in cold weather, though it does require close attention to brooding temperature. We will brood the chicks inside on pine shavings until they are cold-tolerant and then we will put them on pasture in portable pens. We will have them processed when they reach 6-7 pounds live weight and they will be inspected and vacuum packed at a USDA approved facility. We are debating whether we will have them cut up or packaged as whole chickens, so we will probably have some done both ways.
