    I just had my 2nd batch of meat birds butchered today [​IMG] I noticed while I was putting them in my fridge, that the weights weren't nearly as high as they were this Spring. So, I'm not sure if the difference comes from the season?

    Also, I ordered the first batch from Ideal and the 2nd from Welp...And, first time around I had 13, today I had 24.

    Any theories on this? Thanks in Advance [​IMG]

    most of my theories wind up splattered on the shore with the birds pecking them apart . . . lol!
