Hi, does anyone have welp's slow grow whites? How have they performed for you? Has anyone kept them until maturity and if so, how did they behave? I ordered 25 for my birthday and wanted to know what to expect since there is little info online.
Hi. We butchered some Welp Slow Whites a few weeks ago. We processed the roosters till they were just over 12 weeks. The larger birds weighed just over 6 lbs dressed. The smaller ranged in the 5+ lbs range. We kept the hens because we needed more layers. The first hen layed over the weekend at 18 1/2 weeks.
These are much nicer looking than the cornish-x. They look and act like real chickens -- only much bigger!!
