The Broiler Biography | Week 3

Our little chicks are happy and healthy and still getting noticeably bigger by the day!

We’re onto week three and that means that these little guys are getting a new home this week…PASTURE!

Here’s what our Broilers look like now…can’t you see the difference from weeks 1 and week 2?!

…and for a little scale, here’s me holding one again… I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be able to hold them with just one hand!

Happy Monday!!

    Looks like he has somewhere to go!!! Lemme go!! LOL I know they will enjoy the pasture with it’s varied diet. đŸ™‚

  2. Growing fast, as always! Using your hand and the same surface for scale in the picture is a great idea. Might be a two handed job next week!

    We got our second round of 100 two weeks ago, and within three hours one of them was not looking well. My six year old son, was very loving and kind to it, he talked to it encouraging the little peep that it was to young to die. He held it as it passed, then he waited for his older sister to come home and they went and buried it. We have had laying hens for years and meat rabbits also, and I am always amazed at how hard my children will fight and work to keep an ailing bird or rabbit alive. They know full well that in the end they will be part of that animals death, so that we can have it on the table.

      Thank you for sharing. I think having our children connected to and involved in the daily life of raising animals makes them much more stable and well rounded when it comes to life and death in all of its forms.
