    Here are some of mine at 8 weeks, the day before butchering. This group grew out well and was very healthy. I let them free range some each day, and not a single one went down on its legs. They were delicious!

    August, is that chicken wire on that coop?? And do you just tarp it at night? I think something like that for meat birds is AWESOME!!
