When I started getting into chickens and decided on Marans I looked and looked for what one looks like processed. I never found it. So as a PSA, here ya go. This is a blue copper Marans cockerel. Aged 20 weeks, fed organic broiler ration and pastured. The last six weeks of which he ran amok. He and his brothers were processed yesterday. He is currently resting and will be cooked tomorrow. I kept the biggest cockerel (I picked my foundation roo because of his size) in order to keep breeding for larger males. It weighs 3.3 lbs. There is a lovely layer of thick yellow fat. The skin has a nice color and texture. There is depressingly little meat considering how much food he ate. Better than a single use layer bird, less than a single use meat bird, but still less than I hoped for. And I did NOT want to feed them another 4-6 weeks. My Olive Egger boys are even smaller. The keel bone goes WAY down the length of the body. I can barely fit my hand into the cavity. I will post pics of an OE when it comes up.
