So, I’m going to get off my soap box before I fall through it and turn my brain drain to another less contentious subject.
We are raising some fast growing Cornish Cross Fryer chickens, (aka the Sumos) we don’t actually like to raise these birds as we feel that quality of life for our chickens is important and since the Sumos consider the waddle between the food and water more than enough exercise they don’t even consider scratching around and cooling off in a dust bath as regular chickens do. We are studying the rate of growth of these chickens in comparison to the growth of rate of the slow growing Cornish Cross birds as a learning exercise for the WOOFER interns that we are welcoming in June/July. Currently at about 4 weeks old the Sumo roosters are gaining about a quarter of a pound a day !! a perfect definition of Gluttony.. and they look happy with life,…. particularly when we bring in more food !
The cuckoo clock just cuckood, time to move. Take care, keep safe, M
