    Default 99 cent bitties

    our tsc has been receiving chicks from the hatchery they are contracted with ( corporate's doing) and some shipments are labeled correctly as two which breed they are or what sex so they are letting them go for .99 each.. this time of year that's a steal and they are still in time for butchering. check your local for anything like this. there were meat and egg layers in the batch that was identified. so its a matter of sexing at that age.. good luck with yours.

    One thing we did discover this year from raising chicks/chickens/slaughtering. The eggs that we left with a brooding mother to hatch and raise by herself ALL became good laying hens themselves (no roosters).

    The eggs that we took, and placed in the incubator were mixed sex, while the chicks we got at TSC were a majority roosters....argh !

    Sounds like a liberal social experiment gone bad.
    Once on safari in deepest darkest Afganistan we ran out of Gin, and were compelled to survive on food and water for several days.

    Love and nuturing counts for something in the animal world.....i'm not sure how this relates to the human race.

    Although the snowflakes who still live in Momma's basement (nest), are rather girlish, and emotional basketcases.
