Hi!-
I'm raising 30 Brahma and Barred Rock roosters for meat. They are about 4 1/2 months, and I butchered 2 last week, and the only weighed about 2- 2 1/2 pounds butchered weight.
Any suggestions on how I could fatten them up faster?
Also, I'm feeding them 2 times a day.

Just didn't know if we were suppose to. They are in a tractor all day with grass and bugs, etc.
Feeding Nutrena Nature Wise also co-op feed meat bird... Two grain shovels full a day for 30 birds.
