The Life of a Meat Chicken, Week 3

The birds have moved out of the brooder and onto the floor of the chicken house. They are here for a week until they move out on pasture. In the forefront is a meat chicken. To the right is a brown pullet that will become a layer. Notice the size difference? And can you spot a turkey? We have had great success raising all these birds together, no loss in this batch!

    They are growing up fast. I can’t see the turkey, but I don’t know what I’m looking for either.

      The turkey has a longer neck and a less visible comb on its head.

        It takes the eye of a farmer, I guess. 🙂
