Chicken Not-So-Little

The broiler chickens are growing fast. At this point they’re eating 42 pounds of feed a day, plus grass and bugs they find in the pasture. They’ll be seven weeks old tomorrow. Many people butcher at seven weeks, but we keep ours nine weeks for a nice big bird that you can get three meals out of. I think tomorrow I’ll take a scale to the pasture and weigh a few.
