So in October we received four chicks that a friend hatched for us, three of which turned out to be roosters. So we had hoped for all hens as we're typically only raising our birds for eggs. They're now 17 weeks old and people are telling us we should get the two roosters butchered, but scanning a couple threads on this forum has made me wonder whether they'll be appropriate for this. All this talk about certain feeds and age of slaughte, medicated feed etc. We didn't raise them for this purpose so we just fed them chick starter freely and didn't think anything of it. Can we still use them for meat at this point?
