    We were curious as to the weight of the birds we have in the tractor right now. We thought we would grow them out to about 9wks but it doesn't look like we should wait that long. They are about 7.5wks. The largest male weighed in at 8.5lbs and the smallest female weighed almost 5.5lbs. Looks like we will be processing this weekend!

    They are cornish roasters from McMurray.
