My brother and I have been thinking about raising some chickens. Just wondering what the rate of gain for lets say a Cornish chicken raising it to maybe 4 to 5 pound before it is dressed? Also is it about 6 to 8 weeks for a Cornish to get to around that wieght? Growing up on a farm you think I would have an idea of what it would be but I have been away from the farm far to long. Hope to do raise them like we did when we were kids I think I remember that after about 3 or so weeks we would let them have run of the farm so I know that would cut down on feed but just would like to get somewhat of an idea of what it is going to cost per chicken to get it to my dinner table. My mouth is watering thinking about a farm fresh BBQ chicken hot off of the grill. The store bought chick quailty just keeps getting worst. Thanks in Advance for any information you can give me.
