My males are just under 5 weeks old right now, inside my basement, and crowing even through the night. My roommates are starting to get a little frustrated with my new endeavor. I know they are fully grown to be processed by 8 weeks, but how large of a weight difference is there between 5 and 8 weeks? Am I creating a huge loss by processing them 3 weeks early? Is there a way you found that keeps the crowing to a minimum so I can wait out the last three weeks?
