The meat chickens were 3wks old on Tuesday.
(Gee do they grow!)
We have been doing meat chickens every year now for the past 8yrs. We prefer to grow ours out a bit slower than their commercial relatives. Usually to about 14-16wks, by this time most are 2.5 -3.5kg.
They may grow slower but they live a happy life free ranging & eating natural foods instead of mass produced garbage. This morning they devoured a large bowl of rolled oats & bran mixed with a generous pour of warm milk.
(Yummy straight from the cow milk that is, the stuff you can't buy & with all that lovely cream on top)
I could of eat it myself....in fact I did have porridge for breakfast.
Does anyone else raise their own chicken or other meats??
