MeanV2, 8 weeks!!!!!!! Omg they are huge! Mine are 5 weeks and they are a quarter of that size!
They will change a lot week to week and 3 weeks will make a huge difference! The wife asked today how many Chickens are you going to get?
I promised her no more than 5,000
I am pretty pleased with them and they have a long way to go but are already starting to show some good overall type. They are getting spoiled! Right now it has been a battle with these darn gnats. I'll be glad when they run their life cycle.
Oh my goodness! So it's not just us having issues with gnats this year. I don't remember them being this bad here in a long, long time!
A little bit is fine. Make sure they have chick grit and or regular grit. I would mix them and let them pick out the size they need.
I just noticed today that their butt fluff is really getting poofy!!! It wasn't even that fluffy yesterday! FLUFFY BUTTS!!!! I'm so excited!! I am having mosquito and chigger problems, no gnats, do gnats bite? If not be glad, I'm going broke on bug repellent.
I spent $54 yesterday on things to try and help the girls deal with them. Gnats can & do kill a lot of chickens.
Google it or search BYC!
Wow! I had no idea that the lives of my chicks were at risk due to gnats. What in the world do they do to chickens?
Here is just a little reading you can do on this subject. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/185421/buffalo-gnats-killing-chickens/30
Quick genetics question, if I breed a splash Austrolorp Roo with my two black hens, I will get 100% blue? Anyone know hat would happen if I bred him with my Buff Orpington?
