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??
