Barred rocks and other dual purpose chickens need to be about 20 weeks before they are really big enough to butcher.

I really dont mind exactly how big they are.I guess I might be butchering them at 4 months.I already have an oegb roo and hes a handfull for our neighbors.Im afraid if I keep them past 4 months they will really start crowing.I guess I could make a nice soup out them?
