Been on all crack corn for about a week. Difference between pullets with feed restriction and Roos without is drastic but haven't weighed them.

I have my first 3 australorp/orpington chicks. They are precious. 1 week old now and just as hyper as can be. 5 more weeks free feed of chick starter (non medicated) then grower until 12 weeks then 50/50 corn/grower. day 1
day 5. Lil bugger likes to snuggle.

Do you by chance have pictures of the project birds?

those are my failed experiment of white leghorn to spitzhauben roo. That's them 2 weeks ago. They are not going to make a very good meat bird as they are just too small .
