This outside sun porch is a convenient place to transfer eight to 10 week old broilers and raise them from three to seven pounds for frying or roasting. Raising in confinement makes for tenderness and rapid weight gains. Sanitary floor is seven-eighth inch wire mesh. Allow one square foot of floor space per bird at 10 weeks and two square feet at 20 weeks.
