DRESSED weight of 16 wk old BBW male?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Can anyone tell me from experience what a 16 wk old BBW male will weigh when butchered?

 

Thanks!

It's going to depend on what they are fed and how much feed per day. At 16 weeks you may have a range from 14-18 lbs roughly. My 20wk BBB tom dressed out at 27lbs. My two hens at 22wks dressed out at 24lbs and 22lbs. If that helps give you some idea. They all got regular feed of approx 1-1/2 lbs per bird per day plus a little scratch corn.

You win some and lose some. When at first you don't succeed: try... try... try... try and try again.
