I am thinking of slaughtering ("harvesting"?) the nugget pullets sooner than Christmas. There are only two of them, and the six cockerels tend to push them out of the way for feeding time so I think they may not be growing as fast. They are a bit larger than the Cornish Rock "Game Hens" at the grocery, which are actually Cornish-Rock pullets at 5 weeks of age, with no game in them at all.
Right now, hubby is looking at these chick tractors as an end to his needing to mow ... while I look and see composting in place and think the grass will grow even faster than before. We ought to figure out which of us is correct around May.
