Two weeks old

Yesterday the meaties turned two weeks old, so as I did with the Freedom Rangers earlier this year I have started weekly weigh ins on the birds to see how they're growing and what their feed conversion rate is.  As of 11/1/11 the Kosher Kings weigh on average 6.7 ounces with the largest being 8.15 ounces, and the smallest being 5.2 ounces.  They're not growing out quite as quickly as the Freedom Rangers did.  At two weeks the FR's averaged 8.67 ounces, so the KK's are almost 2 whole ounces behind the FR's.  That's a little disappointing.  Maybe next week's weigh in will be better.

 These guys attack the food like little land sharks!
