My journey with chicken farming started two years ago after I read The Omnivore’s Dilemmia by Michael Pollan. The first year we raised 35 cornish cross rock chickens for the freezer. Last year we raised 50 freedom ranger chickens. Today we begin year three with the arrival of these 50 cornish cross rock chicks.

50 Mail Order Chickens

They’re terribly cute. My only saving grace is that they won’t stay that way. Unlike the girls who provide us with eggs, the cornish cross rocks are not particularly lovable when they grow up. For now we’ll have fun and enjoy the cutie-patooties.
