Raising Meat Birds

the chicks at a few days old in late May
graduating to a modified baby crib turned upside down in the barn in early June
out to pasture in mid June - this mobile pen was moved once a day - this way they got bugs and a variety of grass and weren't eaten by predators
the fateful day in late July at 12 weeks old, approximately 6 pounds
