    It's
    out of Zeeland, MI. I bought mine from them this fall when no one else was shipping for a couple months. Their paper flier says they ship all winter, but I didn't check much on their website. They call them The Hubbard White Mountain Broiler, but it's the same thing. Very good with shipping, and good growth/survival rate so far- I butcher mine next week.

    That is close enough to home....how long do you keep them before butchering? I mean how old are they when you butcher them?

    We keep our White Broilers until 8 to 9 weeks of age. We provide ad libitum access to feed and water along with adequated ventilation.

    We use a feed conversion projection of 2.1 for our birds. We sell "Broiler Packages" at our Feed Store which consists of 50 chicks and 600 lb of feed.
