sloooowww growers - here's the problem.

Pin feathers will come on before the bird gets meaty. If you don't mind finger plucking, but want to skip the excess fat, how about 12-15 weeks? (wild guess here....)

If it were me, I'd try to time it around the feathering - which means I'd be checking the bird weekly. Little feather nubs are a pain to pluck!
