This was my first go 'round with meat birds. I processed mine at two days shy of 8 weeks old. They were very uniform in size except for two smaller birds that were just over 4 lbs. The 23 birds averaged 4.74 lbs. I couldn't wait to taste them so I roasted one for dinner tonight and as most of you know, there's nothing like the taste of homegrown chicken. I am really looking forward to getting another batch in the spring. I am thinking of doubling my order to 50 birds next time. There is plenty of quality pasture on my land with a good mix of white clover, and I've already received my Premier 1 electric net fencing, so I'm rarin' to go in Spring. I definitely think there is a market for them in my area, seeing as how a lot of my friends are anxious to have one of my birds, and there are lots of farmers markets in the area. Overall, we are very pleased and satisfied with our first efforts.
