Hey folks I bought 10 BO chicks at 3 weeks old from a local farmer, who incubates hatchery eggs. They are now 8 weeks old, and there is a pronounced difference in the size of the birds. There is a group of 3 or 4 that are the largest, some in the middle, and some obviously a lot smaller. I thought perhaps they in fact hatched at different times, but the lady said no, they all hatched within a day. Are the smaller birds the bad result of inline breeding that I learned about on this forum? I leanred about inline breeding when I previously posted a question regarding the fact that one turned out to be a cockeriel and if I decide to breed, would he be the brother or half brother to the pullets. Anybody?
