Broilers: 5 weeks and growing...

Here they are celebrating their 5 week birthdays at the early morning salad bar. Note that we switched to Plasson bell style waterers. They're recycled from a commercial chicken house, and can be attached simply to a 5 gallon bucket reservoir on top of the coop. Much less strain on the back, and they have more capacity than the galvanized waterers. Two per pen filled with 100 birds should get you through the day.
