    Here ya go-

    Broilers or fryers: birds slaughtered at 7 to 9 weeks of age when they weigh 3 to 5 pounds and dress a 2 ½ to 4-pound carcass
    Cornish game hen: birds slaughtered at 5 weeks of age
    Roasters: birds grown out to 12 weeks or longer

    Some breeds may need 10 + weeks depends what breed you get.
    The breeder is saying 3 months to butcher on the Freedom Rangers. But the white ones that are ready in 8 weeks (I cannot recall what they are named) are the ones they sell at the grocery stores and they apparently have some health issues and they have some kind of fat that is not good for some reason.

    If you think things are bad right now, just wait until the VAX deadline comes and goes and with it thousands of first responders, military, truckers, medical workers and folks from major companies like American Airlines Southwest and P&G. Think store shelves are empty now, wait til the first part of January.

    Has anyone else heard of a shortage of Christmas trees???

    Several Fire Depts in my area do Christmas tree sales as an annual fundraiser. I have heard of 3 depts. so far that have had to cancel their fundraiser because they could not get trees.

    I don't get this. It's not like they are shipped from China & are stuck on a container ship. I believe 2 of them use a supplier in VT, 2 states away.
    Why would they NOT be available?
    My retirement plan is: Civilization will probably crumble before I'm 65 and money will be meaningless anyway.

    In AZ there is always a shortage of pine trees in general. We have not had a real tree since we left MN. Last year, I did see them for sale in Tucson but they were insanely expensive - $200+. I may just put solar lights on the chickens this year.

    Not to mention that the trees you are buying this year were planted 8-10 years ago, so don't hand me any crap a bout COVID doing it.
