Raising Cornish Cross Chickens – Week 6

I am pleased to say that week 6 went MUCH better than week 5!!  If you want to read about the first 4 weeks here they are: Week 1Week 2Week 3Week 4

We had no casualties this week and as you can see their feathers are filling in nicely.  So allot less ugliness going on. 😀

6 Week Old Cornish CrossI weighed a couple of them on Friday and they weighed right around four pounds.  They are the perfect weight for the fair this week. 🙂

  1. Thanks for the weekly updates! I’m looking at getting some cornish this week. However, we built our coop to be stationary – is that going to be a problem?

    1. Hi Gracie…what a beautiful name…hehe. That should not be a problem at all. My mom is raising some too and she keeps hers in a coop and they are doing just fine. Having them in a moveable pen is just a personal preference. I wanted them to have access to the fresh grass. But, to tell you the truth it’s kind of a pain to move and I’ve noticed the bigger they get the less grass they eat. I think your pen should be just fine. 🙂 Good luck with your chickens! Grace
