Hello! This is my first post! I love my chickens and treat them as pets however I have come in contact with something I only Ever heard about. Poultry house chickens, The kind raised on steroids and antibiotics or so I've read. I just acquired five of these bird's. For hens and one rooster. They are 8 weeks old and weight close to six pounds! This disturbs me. But what disturbs me more is their behavior and condition. They can't seem to stand for more then a few minutes and they walk bow legged. Some are worse then others. The rooster is in the best condition. They are managing to get around enough to eat and drink. I read that they can't stand for long because their bodies developed faster then their organs. Is that true? This whole thing disturbs me but what I want to know more then anything is if they have a chance to be more normal? Will they develop better over time with good feed, bugs and greens? Or are they doomed to a disabled life?
