AJ is caring for our this season’s first batch of two hundred Cornish Cross chicks. The first few days are pure joy, since fluffy, cheeping chicks are undeniably cute. As they get older, caring for them becomes more of a chore, as they eat more, drink more, and make a lot more mess. By the end of season after raising several batches we are ready for a break. But this year things will be different, or so we hope. More to come on that, but we’re working hard on changing our pastured broiler system so that we have to work a little less hard during the rest of the season.
