I have two meat birds that are the last of a group of ten. We got them early to mid April. I’ve had a meat bird in the past and she lived for about 10 months but at the time she was one of our very first chickens and we had no idea that she was a meat bird to begin with. So by six months she couldn’t walk very well etc. Well, now we have a roo and hen about five months and I just heard him crow for the first time and they’re still running around, flying, and roosting. I have high hopes for them, but I know broilers don’t necessarily last long and I just want to gauge how long these two have left.
