I can weigh him today. I'll use my dairy scale. He is a nice bird. Did really well over winter free ranging with hardly any food from us.I'll weigh him today and then later when he is on the clover and bugs. I just started giving them goats milk so that should put some weight on them too lol.

Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye must foul the residue with your feet?

Freeranging in middle tennessee with no feeding from us, he is at 6 pounds today. He's heavier than that when there is more browse. I don't really feed the chickens a whole lot of anything extra since they are freeranging. No idea what he weighs in top condition. I'll reweigh later in the year.

 

I'm trying to make chickens that do well on no feeding from us in our area, keep weight on, are pretty (in my mind), with feathers i can use for crafting and making lures--etc. :-D

Now this thread gives me a really good feeling because I'll be creating a White Dominique this September. So excited! Now i know they'll come out pretty without messy barring.

Doesn't look like you've been on in a while, but thought I'd ask anyway.

Any updates on this project?
