This is Ollie. Ollie weighed 18 lbs. when he passed away at a little less than 8 months old. He was still trying to mate right up to the end, but trying was all he could do. No matter how determined he just couldn't get point A to reach point B. Ollie was a commercial meat bird, a Cobb on Cobb, so even larger than the CX's you get from the hatcheries.
I had other meaties that laid eggs and one even tried going broody, but she didn't make it past day 15.
YES! He's one of the meat birds I was speaking of..I just couldn't remember who had him:( Katythechickenlady had Some that lived 18 months? They were 20lbs when they passed.
