My SO harvested our two boys Monday. Their crowing was driving me crazy and any complaints would mean the whole flock would have to go. Now that they are gone I miss them. I know they would have eaten me if given the chance, I could tell by the way they looked at me, so Im trying not to feel bad. Plus the girls seem to be more relaxed now. What Im interested in finding out is your experience with the dressed birds. Ours were both around 17-18 weeks. The Favorelle looked like the bigger bird but he netted just 4lb 5/8oz and most of that was bone. The RIR looked smaller and was likely a few days younger. He dressed to 4lbs 1 1/8oz and was much meatier, smaller bones. Both were on 18% chick starter. The RIR liked healthy treats:, BOSS, weeds, snail and veggies while the Favorelle only ate his crumble. Id like to read other experiences. I wonder how much the breed makes the difference vs. what they ate. And to find any other factors that affect net weight.
