    Am i the only who puts her chicks and ducks on a scale to track their weight??? I started it with dumdumchiken because it was so tiny, only 22grams- s/he is now 100gram. I am absolutley amazed how fast the muscovys grow. Two are already 1 1/2 pounds(drakes?) and the other 1 1/4 lbs (a female?)

    I weighed the chicks the first few weeks, but stopped after they got to about a pound. It was fun to see who was growing the fastest.
