I'm going to be ordering my day old white rocks and had a few questions for those of you with past experience. The females or non-sexed are $2.30 and the males $2.50. I am thinking its worth the extra .20 per bird for a larger product, would you agree? Or is there really not much diffe How many weeks before they can free range outside? I would do them on a modified feeding schedule so they were a little more healthy and may take an extra couple of weeks. I'm in Ontario so, don't want them too early as we will still have some snow patches in April, and I think late May would be the first I'd want them outside all day. Trying to work backwards from late May free ranging. Do you think at 5 or 6 weeks they can free range? (under some sort of chicken tractor) since we have lots of predators here.... I'd be interested in also raising some heritage meat birds, but the variety available in Canada is truly lacking. If anyone has info on Canadian Hatcheries that ship heritage meat birds, please join in the conversation!
