Butchered chickens on schedule! 8 of the little buggers are in the freezer now. Averaging 3 lbs a bird. Not very big, and not very economical (we’ve got a small fortune into this flock) but this is our “learning batch”. This year I plan to get my birds earlier and have a truly free range flock which should cost a lot less to raise.
I also was able to weigh the steers better today:
Black = 414 lbs
Brown = 600 lbs
Red = 650 lbs
Might have the brown one and the red one reversed; I can never remember which is which. Anyway, looks like we need to increase their feed again.
