They're Hee-re...

52 Cornish Cross. There were 54 but I smooshed 2 with the drinker last night. I suck :(

I am trying out this new EcoBrooder from Brinsea. The chicks really like it and it's nice not to have to worry about heat lamps and fire hazards. The only design flaw is they gave it a flat top that the chicks can get on and soil.


  1. You have your hands full!
    Have fun with all of those chicks :)

  2. I love baby birds! It must be really rewarding to take care of them from such a young age! Cornish Crosses are meat birds right? I am still a long way from having my own farm but working on my savvy is the fun part! ;)

    1. Yup. They are meat birds. Stinky and nasty in 3 days but good eats!
