24 last week, ranged from 4.5 to 6.75 pounds. Most of my roosters were 6 and over. Butchered the day before turning 8 weeks.

I've had several of them hit 7+ pounds in 8 weeks in Fall batches, but never in Spring/Summer batches. They seem to eat a lot more when the weather is cooler. Makes sense, I tend to eat less when it's hot.
