Mmmm... Gonna taste like...

Well.... Chicken, I hope. 

10 Jersey Giants are starting the fattening process. Last year's Delawares we a bit of a bust with the heaviest topping out at 2.5lbs dressed weight. This year, we're hoping for 4 to 5 lbs per bird at 12 weeks. I put a couple on the scale and they're right around 1.4 ounces at this point, which is 4 days old. Ok chickens: you have 80 days to gain at least 63 ounces. Get eating.
