    Hi, My aunt owns a ranch in Boulder Colorado. She specializes in grass-fed/finished pasture-raised Black Angus Beef. She wants to add additional meats to her butcher block shoppe. I have been doing research to help determine her options.

    This is when I ran across the concept of the Heritage Farm that promotes a lifestyle she/we have always lived. As I uncover useful information I document into her website that I am creating for her. It is still in development. This is how we are currently sharing information on this project.

    http://www.heritagebutcherblock.com

    She has up to 40-60 pasture-raised laying hens on her ranch at any given time. They are not free-range because she has to lock them in the very large chicken coop at night to protect against the coyotes and lions that live around her lake. She sells all her eggs locally for $2 a dozen. She puts the egg cartons and a coffee can into a garden shed. Clients bring empty cartons back, take egg filled cartons with them and leave their money in the coffee can. She rarely has left over eggs.

    She is interested in adding the Barred Plymouth Rock market chickens and Bourbon Red Thanksgiving turkeys to her menu.

    Welcome to BYC! I know a lot of people are wanting to eat healthier food, but don't have time to do it themselves. Hoping her enterprise will be a big success!

    I am learning about the pasture-raised Barred Plymouth Rock market chickens. I need to know the optimal age and weight range that these chickens will finish out. Along with the percentage of weight lost after the chickens have been dressed out.
