Each day I got the boys to help me move them in their moveable coops to give them fresh grass. Man, they ate a ton so the grass also got dirty quick!
Today we got them butchered. It was on the lower end of their ready time. They were 10 weeks old this week and you can butcher a couple weeks later but we're going away next week so had to do it early. I was real curious to see how they looked without their feathers.
Luke had to get in the coop and hand them to Silas and me. He wasn't too thrilled about that,, or getting up so early!

I just got back from picking them up. The butcher said they looked real good! Should be a yummy meal on Sunday! They weighed between 4.8- 5.8 pds each. Hopefully next year we can keep them around alittle longer to plump up some more!
So nice seeing the full freezer!
