When I received my order from Ideal, they had put plenty of extra packing peanuts in. I'm pretty sure they are production reds, and I don't have a need for 11 extra roos, so unfortunately they'll be processed. Obviously I don't want to feed them any longer then I have to (especially given the fact that all they do is EAT! I refill their feeders every morning, and even though they don't ever run out of food, they're always starving). They're seriously eating me out of house and home, and at $17 for a 50lb bag of gamebird feed, they're putting a big dent in my pocket book. So my question is, what's the earliest I can process them and still get a decent sized carcass? I don't think I've ever really had a breed I've disliked......until these guys. They're huge, gobble up everything in sight, and are making a stinky mess of my brooder. I can't wait until they're outta here!!!!!
