Frustration and success
I'm really loving the Freedom Ranger chicks. They are cleaner and more active then the cornish crosses. As so far, very sturdy. They do grow a bit slower, but nothing that makes me concerned about their ability to be a good size roaster at finish. I'm holding back a complete endorsement for a taste test, but hopeful we can completely eliminate the use of the Crosses before the end of the season. In good news though, the weather has improved enough to get the first batch of crosses finally in the moveable pen. I'm glad, and hoping they will get some of that good green grass in their systems.
I hit a moment yesterday that I hadn't hit in the month I've been on the farm full time. I was totally overwhelmed and really worried that I couldn't get it done in time. But this morning, things are better. I see the the amount of work, and I know it will be done. The best way I can. So I better get to it.
