Wow, that's a whole lot of meat chickens!Hope you have a large freezer!
nice, is that for personal or do you sell also?Wow!
I have 16 that hatched on Monday and 26 due around the 19th.
haha! We butcher them in groups of 300, and a lot of them go straight to delivery. Usually we have around 4 deep freezes full at one time.
nice, is that for personal or do you sell also?
i'm not sure what the regulations are in the USA. In Canada, you can sell them straight from the farm with out being inspected. If you want too sell off the farm (farmers markets..etc) you have to get the processed at an inspected facility. We do both. Some people like the Sunday drive out to the farm, and it gives them the opportunity to get them fresh and not yet frozen. (we only sell them whole)Personal. This is our first time doing broilers so we started small and in succession.
I'd love to find out how to become certified as a farm to be able to sell.
We have a 1000 bird limit also. Your lucky to have a facility that close. Our facility is almost an hour drive for us, but we also process some on the farm.Nice....
We just moved into the broiler business, I'm doing them in batches of 150.
We have a 1000 bird limit we can do on the farm, luckily I have a state inspected processing facility 6 miles from the farm.
I'll be building more brooder space soon as demand is quickly exceeding my current capacity.
I move them out @3 weeks to the tractors but have noticed they seem ok after 2 weeks, we have had reached warm temps lately, they've been without heat for the last 4 days and are going outside tomorrow.
Have you had much issue moving them out at one week?
