Arms Reach co-sleeper, off-white (beige?), the full-size one. Caveat is that I'm in Eagle Creek, out by Sandy and Estacada.

I didn't go to Catholic school, but I was raised both Catholic and Orthodox (Serbian Orthodox). I went to ccd from K-10th grade and also went to Orthodox Sunday school. Sometimes we went to the Orthodox church every Sunday for awhile, sometimes the Catholic church, and sometimes we'd alternate Sundays. Anyway, other than keeping straight which way I was crossing myself, I never had any problems. But, despite all the church going, my parents were in it for the cultural...

Well, I guess I was thinking diarrhea because the feathers around their bottom look wet-ish and black/dirty. You know, maybe it's because they are cornish crosses and are always pooping and laying down in it. My layers look fine.
My only advise is to price out feed in your area beforehand. We're using organic feed and it is SO pricey! I've been out planting seeds all day today, so that we'll grow our own feed before the next batch of chickens! I do think it's a good idea to have at least a couple layer chicks in with your meat chicks, so that your kids have some to get attached to. Our cornish cross hens were white, so we got black and orange layers -- easy for my young kids to know which are...
I apologize for the less-than-appetizing post, but I hope someone here can help answer my question. My meat chickens have diarrhea but otherwise appear healthy. How do I know if they are safe to eat? This is our first year with meat chickens. We were planning on butchering next weekend.
