    Contemplating meaties this year and I'm curious to know if, since they grow faster, they also feather faster? Or do you just get big naked chicks? [​IMG]

    No, they don't really feather faster. In fact, that is why they look naked when they are teens and adults. Which is why they are so easy to pluck at processing time!
