Thank you for your knowledge De Bauer.. We're happy with them so far.. As a man I stay away from soy as well, it's proven to increase ones estrogen levels and as a man I don't need such..

Very happy with our Welp slow grow broilers.. They got out in the yard this sunny day.. Of the 25 we had we sold 11 roosters leaving us 4 roos and 10 hens..

Good morning.. Might someone be able to shed some light on the "so called" slow grow Cornish x ? We bought 25 from welp hatchery that hatched 9-2-20 and they're doing fine.. ZerO loss, apple cider vinegar with mother.. Strombergs also carry's the slo gro, My curious brain would like to know what makes up the slow grow birds..
There’s an alternative to consider.
Good Shepherd Ranch Frank Reese Jr has been raising New Hampshire large fowl for their meat and eggs for decades.
The males are processed at 16 to 20 weeks for Broilers.
Females start laying around 5 months and average around 200 eggs annually.

You can't have a broiler that old. It's a fryer at that age. The terms are not for size of carcass rather the method of cooking able by age of bird.

Broiler, fryer, roaster and stew. Four age groups by hottest method able to cook them.

You’re right that age is called fryer.
Appreciate your information.
Thanks
