Spring is official...Broilers are here!

The girls are excited to see ALL those baby chicks!

Hard to believe it is that time of year, but my freezer was insisting we didn't delay raising broiler chickens until fall (however, we may get brave this year and do a SECOND batch)!  We ordered 125 (they shipped 130) chickens this year from Central Hatchery as we are always so pleased with how well they do!  We have had them 2 weeks now and haven't lost a single one which is amazing!!  Last year was our first year of using all organic feed and we were incredibly impressed with how well they grew and their overall health was so much better (we didn't lose near as many last year as we had in the past).  This year we took it one step further and locally sourced all of our organic feed!!
