I found a chicken processor close to the ranch that I buy my meat from and they are the place that Rehoboth buys their chicks from.
By the way I talked to the young man on the ranch who is in charge of the meat chickens. They do sell Cornish X chickens as the meat chicken. They did a lot of hands on research and had a high rate of caniblism in the heritage meat chickens like I have, and they take sometimes twice as long to reach butcher weight as the cornish.
I was able to find out that the feed I am giving them is all wrong. It isn't nearly high enough protein as they needed. So no wonder they are scrawny.
I wonder if it is also why they are tough.
I found that I can buy good feed through Rehoboth and also the same Cornish X that Rehoboth buys I can get at the processor. They also are a family farm with a USDA chicken processing plant onsite.
I really like seeing family farms doing business this way.
Ok I went truck shopping today. Ouch!!!! Ok so I wont be buying new.
I have narrowed my focus to a Toyota Tacoma around 2007 35k miles and under as my price range. Wish me luck.
