mmmmmm the first batch of 19 (-6) out of 25 are great! I had some 9/10 lbs at 11 weeks.Whew! the work is hard but worth it! Soaked in buttermilk WOW! tastes like chicken! e This time I am getting 100 st run from Ideal and I will altrinate corn/turkey pellets w scratch and lots of fruits and veggies (from farmers mkts damaged free garbage) AND I will add 3/5 buckets fresh cut grass/weeds from the field. (I do not free range) Any other ideas to cut my food costs? I am hoping to get these chickens to 12 weeks for some giant 12 lb birds!
