Well, I figured I would start this post..and sure there have been similar posts in years past. However, I am doing a batch of Cornish X right now, but can't help to notice how quickly my Rhode Island Red (likely a rooster) is growing in size. He is about 5-weeks old, and about 1-lb. I can see that in 14-16-weeks he may be at the 5lb range max and that would be a decent meat/feed conversion bird. What is the fastest growing meat bird that one could propagate at home without prize stock? Anyone have any experiments/tests based on weekly data?
