Hi.... This past May I had purchased 25 Red Ranger chicks. I harvested them in late August except for one, which I kept and integrated her into the coop with my egg layers (which she integrated just fine). It's now December and she is so much larger.
Which got me to thinking, even though the recommendation is to harvest this breed at 12 weeks... why not wait so instead of harvesting them at 12 weeks why not wait until 20 weeks or 24 weeks when they'd be so much larger (more meat). I have my thoughts, but would like to hear what others do and/or think about what age to harvest. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
