So my meaties are now 7 weeks old. I got their age a bit mixed up and thought it was only 5 for some reason. So I weighed one of the roos today, I mean they looked big, but what do I know. He was not the biggest roo and was 8-1/2 pounds. NO WONDER he looks so big! I did not weigh the others, but I bet the big roo is over 10 then. So I guess it is past time to process them. Looking like Tuesday evening may be the day... I have 4 girls and 4 boys, I am thinking of doing the roos and giving the pullets another couple weeks on pasture. I did a few old laying hens a couple months ago, but we did not pluck them (skinned), nor did we eat them (at 6 years they were for the puppy). I am a little nervous, and also wondering how big these chickens will be!
