How old are these, Wing?
Had an awesome time at the Delmarva Show, met some really knowledgable people and the kids had a blast. Nice to see Orpingtons take both Best of Class and Reserve in English (not my birds but still great to see), our lil black Orp did better than we thought and our big blue girl not so good. Unfortunately while unpacking show crates we had 2 Marans escape. I thought for sure these 2 would go into their old coop at dusk and they didn't! Spent more time than I would have liked to searching for them with a flashlight, I can only hope they make it through the night and I find them tomorrow.
8 weeks on good friday,, looking to process half then and half on the next weekend
most of these are sold, but I have about 5 that are not tagged already,,,,,,these were never out on pasture or grass, but have been fed ferment for most of the time,,,,,,,,
may be a stupid question that I just have to experiment with but, I had an old amish guy tell me to give the meaties dairy in the last 2 weeks it will add to the meat flavoring,,,,,,has any one ever heard this.........
