In the Brooder
- Apr 16, 2011
Looks like i have two roos of the RIR/gold sex variety. One was yoddling from about 4-5 this morning....At about what age is a good time to cull for meat? They are roughly 14 weeks old.
Not really. 24 weeks the meat is still tender, but has more flavor. but even a 2 yr old slow cooked will be tender and taste awesomeFrom what I have been told, Now its the time. I think anything after 16 weeks is going to be tough meat.
I kept my last group until 24 weeks of age, got better size and amount of meat than at 18 weeks, and texture seems fine. They were all dual-purpose breeds, they take a little more time to fill out.
Exactly. Cornishx aka broilers prolly would be tough and deff the meat would be grainy if they could even stand that long. lol
I have an 18 week old Americauna rooster that is ready to be culled. Please don't laugh, but my husband and I are both absolutely unwilling to do it, so we''ll probably have to keep him for life. Any suggestions? (Even our neighbors won't take him!)
