My 11 year old son has been doing poultry at the 4-H County Fair in our County for the last 3 years. All of the kids get their chickens from the Ideal Hatchery(broilers). They raise them for the same amount of time(6 weeks). We just finished up our show and for the 3rd year running we did not place in a class. Our hens avg. 6 lbs and roos avg. 8 lbs. The Grand Champion weighed in at 10 lbs. The judge said that our birds needed more "fleshing" in the breast area. What does that mean? I am assuming that the breasts are not big enough. Every year we can't seem to get them to produce "big" breasts. We feed show feed Poultry Master from Acco 30% protein with cracked corn from day 1. They have access to clean water 24/7. They are up off the ground in an 8 X12 dog kennel filled with pine shavings that are raked out every other day. We have fans to keep them cool. The judge did say that our birds were very well feathered out. We do have lights on at night. They have limitless access to feeders filled with food. Obviously, we should be able to produce very large birds since the rest of these people can but WHAT ARE WE DOING WRONG? I do not want to see my son get his heart broken again next year, so I am ordering another set of birds and am going to experiment. I have taught my son to never be a quitterr and to keep trying until we succeed. ANY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO GET MY BIRDS NICE AND FAT WHICH IS WHAT THE JUDGE WANTS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
