Raising Meat Chickens - Higher Average Weight
by Scott K
Just got the last batch of meat chickens back from the abattoir, (49 out of 50) and the average weight was almost a full pound more than a batch I did earlier this year!
Now I have to go check feed consumption and see how much this extra weight cost. They finished in about the same time as the other meat birds, so I need to do a little investigation to find out why the big difference.
Lesson for today, there is ALWAYS something new to learn on a small farm ;)
