Just passed the 9 week mark and i decided to do a little weighing to see where the birds are. I have an even distribution of males and females (+1 female). The avg male was 6.4 lbs with the high being 7lbs and low 5.8. The females avg 5 lbs with the heaviest being 5.6 lbs and lightest at 4.6. The males are all over the scale while most of the females seem to be more consistent. I started them on a bag of medicated feed (50 lbs) and have been feeding them the 'countryside organic' broiler @ 19% ever since. Right at week 9 they finished up the last bag of 19% which brought them to a cumulative of 450 lbs of feed so far. The have access to a 30 x 30 fenced area of grass and bugs for most of the daylight hours. Other than that they get the occasional garden extras and some boss. I ran the math on it assuming average weight of all birds is 5.7, it would equate to a current conversion ratio of 3.1. I heard the ratio is normally around 2.6. I live in southern AL and we have had some unseasonably cool stretches so maybe that is why the ratio is a bit higher, thats my guess???? So assuming they dress out at say 69% i will be looking at roughly $3.69/lb birds. Im not attempting market the birds so im not too worried about the final price but i was at least curious. Obviously the longer i hang on to the birds the price/lb will go up so I intend to whack some of the larger males and females here soon. In doing this i am assuming that the smaller ones may have a chance to bulk up a bit more. According to the website they are suppose to reach 5lbs in a minimum of 9 weeks and max at 11 How much more weight can i reasonably expect them to put on past this point? Also, i am considering keeping a few of the smaller pullets to introduce to my other eggers. Anybody had much luck with Rangers and egg laying? How do they fair?
