there are probably a dozen recipes, all in French. when I can translate a few I will share. they raise and serve barbezieux and la fleche
I got my first Barbezieux egg the day before yesterday, and my hens are still under 5 months old! YAY! I hope to process a few of the boys next week, and I have 2 more sets of chicks growing - there are 5 more from a breeder in CA (GFF parents), that are just coming 4 and 5 weeks old, plus I have 19 chicks from GFF that are just 4 days old. :)
That's great Steph can't wait to see how your hatch goes.
I finally butchered 9 of the 14 cockerels I had. I left 5 for breeding picks.
These are the live weights at ten months old.
1. 6.875 lbs
2. 6.125 lbs
3. 6.375 lbs

Steph are any or your males showing aggressiveness towards humans yet. I have a couple, one being my best looking male that try to spur me. They don't have fully formed spurs yet but when they do they'll get me good. I've already been scratched a couple times. It's a behavior I just can't put up with. It's discouraging.
Your birds look good. Do all your females combs stand up? All my girls combs flop over.
