Well, we got around to butchering our first two roos this weekend, phew, what a relief to have that done with. FIrst time is rather crazy when you have no clue what you are doing. My mom held the books and papers and read out the next step as we went along! I backed out at the last minute from doing the actual killing, just couldn't bring myself to do it. It sure would have been nice to have someone who knew what they were doing to show us the ropes! BUt they are in the fridge busy aging now. Problem is, there is not much meat on these two boys at all! YIKES, here we were thinking we were going to have two big birds for roasting and instead we are going to be doing soup with everything except for the legs! What is the problem here? Food? They were very busy harrassing everyone else... Things are a LOT more peaceful since Saturday and I am hoping that all the others will pick up weight now but I suspect food may be the issue. I haven't found a broiler finisher locally so have been just feeding them the Purina Start and Grow. What should I do to beef up the food? DO they need more protein? Or should I try and order in other feed for the remaining guys? HOw long will it take for them to put on some meat? What do you folks think?
