Meat Chicken Summary and New Silkie Chicks

We originally got 10 chicks

1 died from the cold

2 died in the chicken death spurt

2 got eaten by the dog

5 are in the freezer

So, yea. Not really a good survival rate but it was our first time with meat chickens. I don't think I am going to do it again this summer. I might sometime but for now I will stick to egg layers.

Anyway, last night I bought 3 3 week old partridge silkie chicks. They are about as big as my 3 week old bantam cochin chicks. This may have been a good investment as they will hatch eggs for me but it also may have been a bad idea as I now want to order 10 more silkies.

Anyway, I will try to upload pics soon.
