    So, I ordered the Heavies special at Murray McMurray.
    It was born on the 16th of September
    I want to know:
    1) what breed is it (cockrel)
    2) How old is it usual to butcher this kind of chicken.

    Looks like a slw to me but it's hard to tell what kind of comb that is.

    Quote:Thank you! He is young, like 8 weeks, but it looks to be single and nothing too fancy, lol

    When do these guys get old enough to butcher as a fryer or broiler?

    Thanks!

    aww he's handsome! [​IMG] I don't normally hear people buying this breed to kill, but barred rocks are more for that. I would never kill him, but that's just my proud, normal and humane opinion.
