Some of the soup crew

Here's a few of last year's boys ravaging the remains of my late summer garden. There are two of 14 that have the body type I'm looking for, but I haven't marked them yet and can't remember who's who. And picking them up to check them out is getting to be a chore. All I can remember is one is light with yellow legs and the other is dark with white legs...

note to self - mark those two the next tome I check them out. :P

Re: Some of the soup crew

:eat: Sounds like you need to carry a few zip ties in your back pocket.  Some of your boys look very close to zillara.

That's excellent! We have a few that need to be processed around here but I'm trying to let them grow out a bit more first, just to get some size.

Is there any chance you could post a photo of one you've processed, if you think of it? I'm very curious to see.. :please:

Love that dark rooster in the first photo,  too bad his legs are white.

For Terra... This is the dark boy in the first pic, dressed out - Don't click if you prefer to remember them beautifully feathered!

Here he is on a kitchen scale -

One of these guys will feed 5 of us (Mom, Dad 16yo daughter and 8yo twins) three meals, plus leftovers for me.
If my 20yo son is home, well... he can eat one by himself. :funny: :eat:
Nothing goes to waste here. :thumbs:

Re: Some of the soup crew

Man, look at those thighs.. Thank you for the photos, MD. It's important only because I want to raise them for the DP qualities, not just eggs. Our family eats chicken and I'd rather eat our own, well fed, well loved chooks than those from the supermarket from questionable conditions. :eat:

I hear you on the 20 year old and eating.. Our son is 15 and boy can he clean a plate! :funny:

Re: Some of the soup crew

.....REALLY...your 20 year old is probably like that KFC commercial for boneless chicken except yours HAS bones........."I at the bones....I ATE THE BONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!"  :eat:


I have to keep reminding myself... "It is The Standard of Perfection...NOT the Standard of Quantity that we are striving for..."
