Thread Starter 
I got my first run of meat birds 3-weeks ago. Red Rangers, already pretty well feathered out and living outside.

I took this picture five days ago and I swear they have doubled in girth since then

8-weeks some are about ready to process

Looking good. Mine are 9 weeks old but not processing size yet, I'd say they might dress out at 3 pounds, they seem to be growing slower. How many do you have to process?

I have 10, my first go at raising some birds for meat. A couple of mine are. 4-5 lbs I'm going to weigh the bigger ones later today.

Weighed one of the bigger ones thus afternoon and it was only 4.8 so I'm giving them another week or two before I start.

At what week did you move them into the coop. New to this and I have 6 red rangers (straight run). They are a little over four weeks and getting bigger every day. A lot of feather growth as well, but still not completely covered. We live in PA, so it still gets to around 45 degrees at night.
