Look what arrived at our house today!
This little guy is one of the 100 Cornish Cross chickens that we raise every spring.... yep, for the freezer. Isn't he adorable? You should have heard the poor little chickies chirping and cheeping in their box when we picked them up. It is amazing how loud such little creatures can be.
Believe it or not, these chicks will be ready to be eaten in just 8-10 weeks! When we put them in the freezer, they will weigh as much as 6-8lbs each. Suffice it to say, they will only be cute for a short, short time. They are bred to be eating machines. I am so grateful for the opportunity to raise such healthy, delicious meat each year for our family.
Enjoying the rhythms of the seasons here...
