    I have done a couple searches and have not found what I am looking for

    Just wondering at what weight you have been butchering you red bros or freedom rangers and what is the average dressing %

    This is my first experience with meat chickens and
    Mine are at 4.5 lbs just curious how much bigger I should grow them


    Thanks

    How old are they?

    Let them grow to 7 - 8 lbs to get a 5 - 6 lbs dressed chicken.
