Most of that batch have been harvested now.......I kept 7 hens for laying and dressed the the last four yesterday............the four live weight s were
2050  grams
1750 grams
1650 grams
2150 grams

total 7600 grams live....dressed at 4700 grams a loss of 38 %...but its not lost because here in S E Asia we use everything except the feathers.These are the free range chickens....the 45 day  chicks are long gone.
Some newer pics added to the above blog.


sorry.......they were 71 days yesterday

It's amazing how much they can eat!  And, how much feeder space Cornish X need as they get larger.  In our range shelters, we have 384 inches of feeder space for 50 birds.  And, we fill those at least twice a day, and sometimes 3 times in the last week.  But, it's also amazing how fast they grow!
