When to butcher chickens
This is our first year raising chickens and I'm not sure when to butcher them. They range in age from about 2 1/2 months to 3 months old right now. Some of the roosters are getting their combs. They don't really seem big enough yet to me, but I was reading to butcher them by the time they start getting combs. We had chickens when I was a kid on the farm, but that was a few years ago!
