I ordered 8 White Plymouth rock pullets (day old) with the intention of stuffing them all in my freezer at some point. I do not like the "Frankenchickens" Cornish RockX, they creep me out! So I thought I'd go oldschool with these chicks. My questions are, what is the best organic feed I can give them, how often and with proper feeding, when should they be ready to butcher?(since I know they grow slower than the Frankenchickens) Any help would be appreciated. I'm kinda new to meat birds. Thanks guys! Proud mama of 2 human kids, 1 German Shepherd, 1 housecat, 1 TB horse, 2 Holland Lops and 1 super sweetie-pie Buckeye Hen named "Doris".
