We have a large assortment of laying hens and three gorgeous roos. Im going to hatch a pretty large clutch and plan on raising the hatched roos for meat. I plan on brooding them indoors so i can watch for roos more closely and decide who i want to keep and who will be sold later, and also so i can eeperate meat birds i select. The boys will be moved to a chicken tractor and the rest will be placed with my flock-so i can keep a higher protein feed going to them until D Day. I have mostly dual purpise breeds lije aussies and barred rocks , buff orps. Any tips from the pros? Im not looking to fast raise them-my RIR roo was butchering weight at 10 weeks and thats not an insane amount of time so these can grow as they grow. Anyone hatch their own meat birds? Any tips on which eggs to set? Does the egg size affectthe size of the chick?
