Matt (bro) and I decided to raise broiler chicks this year up in his barn. Our spouses announced from the beginning that "The Jo(e)'s are not involved!" However, right away JoAnne was worried about their welfare in the pen, and both she and Joe have been helping out quite a bit. Here's your first glimpse at our little meatlings.
They're cute, aren't they? It's been a good lesson for our girls so far. They understand we are going to eat these birds when they are "big and ugly," but for now we can visit and take care of them to keep them healthy.
