My three leghorns bought from welp hatchery have big colms and are tall so I'll probably rule them out.. I was thinking slow growth boilers but they wernt slow in the beginning just kinda slowed now I'm thinking not switching to meatie food has a major affect after a certain point I'm just not entirely sure
Let's see: This year I am planning on a human hatchling at the end of April. If that goes OK, then I plan to try meaties for the first time with 4-6, likely ordered from a local feed store as I can get that many from them through the end of May.
For layers, I need to add about 4 new ladies, and I'm thinking a Marans, an EE or two, and maybe another RIR, though I I am open to suggestions. I have to Lorpes, 3 EEs and a RIR right now. I am going for color variety in my egglings.
As to grit, I give mine access to it by the second week. My way of thinking is that if they were with a hen,they would be finding "natural" grit
