Yes, we eat meat.
No, I don't have to justify myself.
I prefer to know where my meat comes from and reared as freely and natural as possible. If we can raise the animals ourselves, all the better.
So here we are. Fifteen broilers, now just over two weeks old. Friends of ours also raise their own and when they got theirs we asked to bring us some too.
The little chicks were only one day old when our friends bought them. They kept these and their own 35 under a heat lamp for a good week.
The chicks have been here now since Friday or Saturday ( I can't keep up with the days) and they are doing well.
They run after flies, midges, buzzing things..., they eat a lot of food and drink copious amounts of water.
They love to stretch one leg and one wing at the same time, which I find funny.
In short, they are healthy and content as far as we can see. We keep a watchful eye to make sure that it stays that way.
I have added a very short video clip just to see if this malarkey works.
