So basically I've wanted to get into meat chickens for a while and now it's looking serious. So this is just a general advice and story thread. Share your biggest bird ever, what % feed you use, How long YOU think the food shifts should be (e.g. taking the food at night, leaving it all day), pictures of your chicken tractors, and even funny stories. Looking forward to seeing the posts!

Oh I forgot. Something I'm wondering about, do you think whether it's a male or female makes a difference in the meat?

My only advice is always wear shoes around meaties, not flip flops. Mine peck my toes HARD! They free range with the rest of the chickens and are trying their best to kill me. They stay under my feet to where I can't walk without tripping and I am convinced if they actually get me down they will have my bones picked clean in 2 seconds flat.
