    New baby chicks

    Our first meat birds of the season are here, in a brand new “hover brooder” that should help them stay warm. We have 2 breeds again. The Cornish Cross are a light yellow, and they’ll grow more quickly. They’re the standard meat breed. The Freedom Rangers will grow more slowly and have more flavor and a slightly firmer texture. It’s a more old-fashioned tasting chicken.

      I’d forgotten how loud their little peeps can be. And warm baby chicks have a very distinctive and new smell. It’s certainly associated with spring, at least in my smell vocabulary. It was a fun day when the mail driver came up the driveway with 2 flat boxes of warm, peeping chicks who couldn’t wait to pop out of that box into their new home.
