My first time raising meat birds and they're 8wks old, tomorrow I'm going to start with the largest guys that are really having a hard time walking. I weighed a random pick today to see if they were as big as they look and it was 9.4lbs. It was not the biggest one out there. I haven't processed chickens in 35 years so I've been reading everything I can find on here and all of the wonderful information is swimming in my head. Does anyone have any "Oops, I wish I had...." suggestions. I'm doing this on my own since my family thinks it's totally gross.
