Hi, This is our first time raising meat birds and we have 46 "red broilers". They are supposed to mature around 10-12 wks. I got ours on May 5th, and the roosters have been crowing now for about a week. Is it time to slaughter? I was scheduled to have them done on July 25th (a little less than 2 weeks away). Do you think I can hold out until this date or will the roosters get tough? It would be great if I can wait so some of the smaller ones can get a little bigger. Unfortunately, these birds are free-ranging in the pasture right by our bedroom window and start crowing each morning at 4am! I might need to get some earplugs Thanks!
