    At our fair the broilers. Have to be 8wks old. You can reach 5lbs in 5 weeks. The last 2 years we have had birds over 9lbs at fair time (8wks). Our birds are on the ground in movable pens. I don't add any extras to their feed but since our fair is in the fall it is hot so I have a fan on the...

    Quote: She's in our freezer. The buyer didn't want her. She told my daughter to keep the bird. Once we get the sales picture my daughter is going to frame it and make a plate of cookies to take to the buyer.

    Quote: No secrets. We have a 35lb feeder that we fill. I don't pull the feed out because around here when the sun goes down it is DARK. No light pollution so the birds go to sleep and not eat half the night. Non-medicated turkey and gamebird starter, water, and moving the pen to clean ground...

    Whelp or Meyer -- an opinions either way?

    I've never used Meyer but we always get our birds from Whelp. We've done very well with them both here at home(layers) and in 4-H(broilers). They were HUGE! We could have butchered at 5 1/2 weeks but had to wait until 8 weeks because of the fair.

    Whelp for us too. We won grand champion with one last year at our fair. It was the best $600 fried chicken I've ever had.
