My husband and I are looking to get some New Hampshire reds and we are having a hard
Time finding information on when you can actually process them. We would appreciate any information on them!!!
Thanks!

You can process them at any age, but they are usually done growing around the 5- 6 month range. You can keep the hens for eggs, as they will start laying at around that age, and process the extra roos. If you keep the extras past that point, you are feeding them just to maintain , you are not actually putting any weight on them at that time. this is what I do with my barred rocks.
