    My Holstein ages 9 and 12, are ding the first broiler project our family has done. We received our chicks about a week ago, they are currently gaining 6oz a week, some more than that. Since this is our first project ( we only have show chickens and layers at home currently) I was wondering a few things, how fats do these birds grow? They have to be between 5-9lbs by fair the first week in August. Man do they poop lol we clean the brooder twice a day, but I was wondering how to get people to the auction to bid on them!? How much they usually go for ( we are in Michigan) and how the auction process works? And I hope I am posting this in the right place lol
