About a month ago...in his bid to rid us of some of the excess BR pullets he had ordered...DH traded 5 of them for 8 RIR (? I think RIR - they LOOK like RIR) roos - with intentions of processing the roos of course when the time came. After several days of WAY too much rain, I still need to get out there and weigh them, so I am just guessing that the biggest three (there were 3 a little older than the other 5) are at about 7-8 lbs each now. Would an 8 lb bird dress out at least to 5 lbs? Would 7 lbs make it to 4 lbs on the table? Just trying to verify - I am great at doing research, but I suck at making sense of it! If so, then I shall write their dinner invite this week...if not...a few more weeks until we plan for that. I believe they are between 12 wks (smaller birds) and 16 weeks old (big ones).
