Well, my Bad Boys are almost to the end of week 2 of the 4 week "finish" period.
Going to weigh them this weekend.
I hope they have gained weight, they are eating me out of house and home!
I was able to get some raw goat's milk to use now and the next two weeks.
A friend of a friend had extra and did not want it to go to waste.
So the chickens will get real, whole unadulterated milk.
(I harvest honey only in the Spring from my bees. I see a gallon of honey mysteriously appearing on their back porch! Happy to have the milk.)
They started to crow today.
What an awful racket.
I have three Cream Legbar mature Roosters I use for breeding.
Once everybody got to sounding off, I had to get away.
What a mind-piercing noise!
That must be one of the reasons the French process them at 16 weeks.
Mine are 14 weeks.
I can't imagine the noise if they were 20-24 weeks.
I'll weigh them Saturday.
