In culling for size...how long do you wait to weigh? Do you have to wait 'til maturity, or can you cull younger? I simply don't have the space to grow out the number of chicks I'm wanting to 6+ months. I'd love to be able to do first round culling no later than 3 months. Is that realistic?
I'm looking at ordering in at least 50 chicks and culling down to less than 10 by next fall.
Aside from clear malformations like cross beak and toe issue, what else can be culled for as day-olds? Has anyone had any problems with having no beards, etc?
