Life on the Farm!

56 Barred Rock Chicks

34 Cornish Cross Chicks

Well we ordered lots of chicken but they aren't all for us. We had a couple families that wanted to start having chickens. So as most mormons do we got in bulk. It was alot cheaper to do it this way. All you have to do is order them on the internet and the post office delivers them to the house. Our neighbors little boy was asking where I got them from and I told him I ordered them off the computer. He was so amazed about it. When he was telling his mom....He said "Jodi went to her computer and chicks just came out of the computer screen. So when can we order ours?" So next time I need to clarify about the whole shipping process for the neighbor kid.

For added information for all who are curious.....Barred Rock chicks are the egg layers and the Cornish Cross chicks are for dinner. The Cornish Cross chicks are a meat bird and they put on enough weight in 6-10 weeks you can butcher them. So I will have a freezer filled with chicken around christmas time.
