Raising Cornish Rock Cross Hens For Eggs-Day 1

I went to the feed store today to get some items and they had chickens. Growing up we always had chickens and never had issues raising them. I was unaware of this particular breed until I bought them and then the lady behind the counter said something I had never heard before "never leave them with feed more then 12 hours a day or they will explode" Ummmm....ok that I must admit was a little scary to me. So when I arrived home I got to googling and I must admit found nothing reassuring about the future of my cute little fuzzy babies I had just purchased. So now my goal is even getting them to a healthy age where they may lay eggs. If I can get them to that I have found there seems to be hope of keeping them alive. So here I am to share my journey with you day by day as long as mother nature will let me.

I'm so unsure about what to do we never used any kind of heat for our chicks growing u but I don't want to kill them either so they are staying in the house to avoid the chill right now. I have water in there at all times but I am only putting the feeder in for 15 minutes every 3 hours during the day right now. At night only water. Hopefully this limit will help them grow slowly and not live their lives with their face in the feed bowl. So heres to hoping :OP in the mean time here is a cute picture for today. One of them must be younger then the others it has less little feathers.

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
