Average growth rate of a Sexlink chick?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I was casually reading BYC threads as I do, and I was curious if there were any threads on the average growth rate of a chick and there wasn't. So now I'm curious to see does anyone know the average growth rate of a Sexlink chick? Haha the things you think of when reading BYC threads :P

Three duck; Albert, Martha, and Lily

Seven Chickens; Almonzo, Clover, Amelia, Rosemary, Laura,

Juliet, and Caroline

Most chicks, including sexlinks, double in size every week for the first 6 weeks. Then the growth rate begins to slow.

So true! I cleaned their brooder out yesterday and put new shavings and you would think it has been at least 2-3 days since I last cleaned it.

It really is quite amazing how quickly they go from being little balls of fluff to small chickens.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
