If you would have told 18 year old me that I’d be a chicken farmer in 2012 I would have either laughed or smacked you (I was a bit violent then :). However with the boss latest up for a few days chorea have become my responsibility. Up until a few weeks ago I was still nervous around the birds, but the added responsibility had provided me opportunity to learn and grow in my comfort level with the birds. And they really are fascinating to watch.
The meat chickens continue to eat and grow and poop and therefore we are moving them twice a day. They are pretty ugly now compared to how they started so it is easier to imagine we will eat them in a couple weeks.
