4 weeks old - 4 weeks left...

I cannot believe we're half way through the first round of broilers! WOW when you measure things in 8 week increments it goes WAY to fast!


  1. Those poor birds can't even grow feathers fast enough to keep up with their ever enlarging bodies. I'm considering Red Bros from Meyer's. They take 11 weeks but don't have the mortality from congestive heart failure.

  2. I've never heard of those, thank for the tip, I'm going to look into them. I thought you did the royal rangers (or something like that?) for your meat birds. No?

  3. I have looked into Freedom Rangers too. They are close to the same bird I think.


So what's the view from your world about that? I'd enjoy hearing it.
