Hi! I'm very sorry if this is a dumb question that everyone just knows the answer to! When is a good time to process Cuckoo Marans, Buff Orpington roos? I have an over-abundance of roos that I need to process at some point in the future. I have looked around and can't really get a straight answer. I don't want tough birds, but I want to be able to get a meal out of them. I contacted a hatchery in my area and the man that answered the phone was quick to tell me that they needed to be 7-9mths old. I've also read that they should only be 12 weeks. I've seen some people say that "when they crow, they go" which I suppose will be around 4-5 months. If anyone has suggestions, I would love to hear!
