Chick's - Week 7

I'm referring to my Cornish x's as "chicks" only euphemistically these days. They have packed on weight so fast that at 7 weeks about a third of the flock is ready to butcher. I figured on everybody being ready around the middle to end of June. Oh well, it will be easier to do it in batches.

Contrary to most of my reading on the internet about this breed, there haven't been any problems No one died unexpectedly or developed any leg problems.  Although if they keep growing at the current rate I can see where leg problems will be an issue. I think having them on grass and not overcrowding has helped more than anything.

Doesn't everything do better with fresh air, sunshine, and room to run around?
