    ok...i bought some chicks in december ([​IMG] why i dont know haha) and now they are about 3-4 months old. there are 2 roosters in the whole bunch and one of them is just a complete jerkwad! he is already agressive and trying to jump on the girls. i cant have more than one rooster anyways so how can i fatten him up to get him ready to be eaten?? he is of a decent size but still not quite big enough.

    If you wait any longer you are likely to be stewing him, maybe need to already [​IMG]

    if he's 3-4 months old, he's ready to go. waiting too long may stick you with tough meat, especially the legs.

    what breed is the rooster?

    hes black! [​IMG]

    he looks like an australorp.. but he is all jerk!
    the thing is..hes so small! do i just stew him then or what? because i can tell by looking at him he would be useless for roasting.
