In chickens, Raising Chickens

So we got our second batch of chicks this week.  Picked up from the local farm supply when the chicks were a week old.  The farm supply gets their chicks from Estes Hatchery in Springfield, Missouri.
For this round, we purchased a dozen chicks, purported to be all pullets. A third of our first batch of 15 turned out to be cockerels so we don’t expect to see drastically different results this time, but maybe. Of the first batch, 4 of the 5 Easter Egger Ameracuanas were cockerels. We got four more of them this time, along with two Rhode Island Reds, and six Buff Orpingtons.

Here is a video from Estes Hatchery.
