    For those of you who have hatchery Brahmas, what weight do they end up at? And from what hatchery?

    I thought someone on the other thread said they would look like 'hatchery lights'. I just hatched some a couple weeks ago...been wondering myself what they will look like when grown.

    Fertility was 100% and all were alive on day 18. My boyfriend decided to finish a batch of maple syrup in the shop when my eggs were at day 19 I think. When I went out there the next morning water was running down all the windows from the steam of the boiling sap. Almost half didn't hatch from the spike in humidity. I was shocked that that I got 24 chicks out of the 40 eggs....figured they were all dead.

    I have a mixed flock, our 4 week old light brahma is smaller than the rest but her personality is amazing. I enjoy watching how fast she changes, how calm and quiet she is (unless I'm out of sight). I am very surprised to have this little girl out eat all others chicks[​IMG]
