Greetings , I like numbers and stats. And I like reading the experience of others. If you are like me, than this is for you. The birds - Moyers Speckled Broilers. http://www.moyerschicks.com/catalog/colored-broilers/speckled-cockerel. I ordered 25, 29 showed up, 24 made it to the butchers table. The birds grew quickly, but were very inconsistent, some are tiny, some are huge. Some look more like a true broiler, some like a DP. They forage decently, but are still on the messy side. They do not roost, so laying in their own poop is an issue. The grow out conditions - I started them in a 3X4 brooder. At two weeks I moved them to an 8X8 grow out shed. At 5.5 weeks we put them outside in a 16X20 run/lean too with fresh oats and rye (We live in Florida). Food - I started on Dumor 24% and served it to them wet, then switched over to the locally produced 20% from Knights farm fresh feed in Bushnell Florida. These boys loved to eat.
