Just a note, during this time of year most of the REALLY experienced people are out working hard with their birds, (meat birds are a lot of work). However they have done you AMAZING favor and written out the answers to most of your questions!!! You can find those on the stickies above. Be sure to read them, as they are advice and direction by some of the best out there . . . much more realistic than you will get from most books. p.s. I'm not suggesting you don't ask questions, just directing you to a great source of info!
