Fattening male goldtops

I left off two males to grow for the crack during the summer. I was surprised at how big they got. Just wanted to know did anyone here fatten them for the table? What were they like? Would it be as handy to dispose of them and get broilers? Thanks

Youll be a long time putting any actual breast meat onto goldtops. Silkies are scrawny things and unless your LS were big, theyll be a waste of time and money

Oure silkies are not sure about crosses. Its a delicacy in China supposedly, some Asian supermarkets may have silkie hens but as to how many and what value its debateable
