Here's a pic I took this morning of the meat birds....they are almost 3 weeks old.
They are actually kinda ugly at this point...but you can see how many feathers are coming in!
In a couple of days, they will be feathered out enough that I will bring them down to the meat bird room at the barn. They'll stay there for the rest of their time here.....
In the next 5 weeks, they will grow and grow and grow and grow.....the average weight when finished should be about 7 pounds, dressed!
Hard to believe now by looking at them isn't it?
