I am so MAD right now. We decided to go with the black broilers from Ideal this time instead of Cornish X chicks. They are 11 weeks old tomorrow and only weigh an average of 4lbs each! Are you kidding me???!~!!?? I got them in September and feed a broiler ration free choice and fresh water 24/7, I know they are more active but dang~! At this rate, I won't get to kill birds for another 3-4 weeks if that. I will never again purchase this breed of chicken EVER~!!!
