Day 2 the Welsummer chicks decide to be tiny fuzzy bullies and the Cornish and Polish chicks decide to call it quits.
I don’t know what happened to this box of chicks but it wasn’t pretty.

Perhaps the best way to reduce the cost of raising chickens is allowing them to harvest their own food.
Overconfidence and a hatchery mix-up result in a lot of chicks!
Having failed at hatching Beilefelder eggs and ordering Brabanter chicks we move on to check out other breeds…
