    Had a bad run early on, and it seems I got a straight run batch.

    My smallest was just under 4lbs in the vak-pak. The biggest was 5.8.

    $2.50/bird to process and vak-pak whole.

    Kalmbach feed from a local feed store, on pasture in Salatin style pens.

    I have now moved to Freedom Rangers that are supposed to show up tomorrow.

    Either way I have sold a few and my freezer is full of wonderful chicken. Bright yellow fat, very good looking birds.

    So far I have sold 18 birds. I have recovered my feed cost anyway.
