    Hey Meaties! We are raising our fist batch of 50 meaties. They will be 5 weeks on Tuesday and i just did a weigh in. They are averaging 4.5 lbs. How are we doing? Do you guys think they are on track for a 7 week harvest? Thinking about keeping 20 or so for 9 weeks. Any suggestions?

    That's pretty awesome for 5 weeks we averaged about 8 to 9 pounds by 9 weeks for our last batch this batch will exceed those.
