I proved myself right again around here by selling the little pullets that we bought along with our meat birds for resale. Rob even acknowledged (if not begrudgingly but only to amuse me) that another one of my crazy animal schemes might have been worth risking. A very nice young couple from Craigslist bought them. We enjoyed the visit as much as we appreciated the sale. I actually came ahead a little bit so I can go buy more chicken feed for those monstrous meat birds.
And talking about meat birds~ we are about 5 weeks into this new adventure. I am still not convinced if I will raise them next year. They eat like pigs! And are soooo messy! Cole and I are experimenting with alternative food sources (cheese, whey, grass and corn) along with the expensive chicken feed. They are growing nicely and in another month or so we will see if our labor was worth the effort. It will be nice, either way, to have a freezer full of chicken.
