Hi, we have 12 'meat kings' that are 4 weeks old today...and growing super fast! The larger ones must already weigh about 3 pounds! Looks like we have a few roo's in the mix as they are getting red wattle and combs already. the bottom pic shows one of our layers-to-be, (we have six and they are 14 weeks old now) we call them 'The Girls'. The meat kings we have nicknamed 'The Oven Club' I can honestly say we won't raise meat kings again, there has been no cute factor with them, which is probably not a bad thing as they are destined for the table after all and they have had an 'oven ready' look to them for the whole time. Our local co-op suggests we can feed the layers and the meat kings the same rations until the hens start laying. Not sure about this, the Girls get plenty of free range time so are well fed with whatever they find in the woods, grass or under the wood pile and of course around the house..oh and not to mention under the cars!
