This is a picture of Richie saying goodbye to our broilers. Our meat chickens have gotten big enough to go to the butcher after about 10 weeks of farm life. Our chickens are raised on pasture and also eat some organic grain. The cages that they are in here are actually rabbit cages, able to hold about 10 chickens, used for transport. Our birds averaged around 5-6 pounds. We will raise and butcher about 100 chickens this summer. Now we have a new batch of them to ready to repeat the whole process.
