Actually, it's the Midget White that comes in first. It actually depends on how many people you are feeding. Just the family? That Midget might be your best bet. If you're feeding a small army you might want to go with a standard Bronze if you're thinking about staying with heritage breeds. If you're going hybrid any Broad Breasted breed will be ready in about 16 to 20 weeks.
thanks everyone we decided to wait till early next year and get a dozen fertile eggs as soon into the begaining of the new year as we can and get White hollands and put them in the quarter acre pen where the 2 butcher lambs are this year.
