First test of heritage meat chicken

Here's a picture of our first test of a heritage meat chicken. This little broiler was brined and smoked for dinner tonight. It weighed in at a modest 5 lb 8 oz at 9 months of regular grower feed. We haven't yet tested growing them on broiler feed.
If this breed tests out in all respects, we will be raising a flock this year for sale.
What do you think?
