In this video Kevin gives you a final look at the current batch of cornish cross broiler chickens. The chickens have reached the 8 week mark but are still just a little under the desired weight of 6-7 lbs. You will get to see a real life weigh in of the chickens and Kevin discusses how much the chickens are consuming on a daily basis.
What is your view on butchering you own chickens? Read our blog post titled “Homestead Butchering. Do I have to?”
There is a lot of good advice out there about raising broiler chickens, but the undisputed authority on the subject is still Joel Salatin. His book “Pastured Poultry Profits” is a must read for any person wanting to raise their own chickens for meat. You can pick up a copy on Amazon through this link. “Pastured Poultry Profits”

****** About Living Traditions Homestead ******
Living Traditions Homestead is committed to living a more traditional and sustainable way of life. We believe the world has gotten too “busy” and that people are missing out on many of the true blessings that God has given us. We started as a small homestead in Gilbert, AZ and after the city grew up around us, decided it was time to take a big leap of faith by moving our family half way across the country to the Missouri Ozarks. We hope you will check back frequently to see how the homestead is progressing.
