Best Answer

If the chickens are Broilers (bred for the table) they will be fast growing and ready to kill atabout six to eight weeks. You will find that cockrells grow faster than poulets.

At what age can a child witness a turkey being slaughtered?

at 5 years of age, it is acceptable to witness this slaughter. Reply: Umm...OK...uh, and what would be the basis of your answer that 5 years of age is the proper age. I know folks who, at 45 years of age, are not equipped to witness the slaughter of a turkey. I also know people who cannot watch a fly being swatted, or a black widow spider being stomped. So let's clean up this answer: 1. If a child is to watch a slaughter, the parent should speak to the child in advance of the experience, to prepare the child for what he/she will see; 2. If a child is troubled at the prospect of death for a creature, the child should not be subjected to the slaughter. 3. If a child exhibits humor at the death of a creature, or indicates a consuming interest in witnessing a slaughter, then the parents should not subject the child to the slaughter without also speaking of the gravity of what is being witnessed.
