More chickens

IMG_1707 copy

We got our second batch of chicks today: 25 more Cornish cross for meat. We had kind of gotten used to the peace of quiet of the empty brooder. Now we wake up to little peep, peeps and the sounds of them scratching around and pecking in the adjacent sunroom. They are so cute at this age. You really forget how tiny they can be; these little guys are about 1.1 ounces each. I kept trying to tell Nathan that these chicks just had to be smaller than the last batch but when you think out that little bird fitting inside an egg shell, of course the size seems about right. It is just so easy to forget how fast they grow.
