Baby bird total here at Willow Garden is now at 100 ... with 30 Welsummer pullets, 6 Welsummer roosters, and 12 Australorp pullets (for my neighbours, but I'll brood them) due to arrive next Wednesday ... :-) The feed store is going to LOVE me this summer ... LOL.
And I have 50 more coming in from Murray McMurrays in the US on May 16th ... both white and black Jersey Giants, and Dark Brahmas. I'm playing around with some slower growing larger breeds for my own use this year. I'll keep you posted with my observations as things progress. So far, my only observation is that Embden Geese increase their size by 50% in their first day and a half of life!
