    Just got 4 Narri hens 2 to 4 months old by usps. They are very healthy and beautiful but small, probably because they were raised on a feed with 18-20% protein. Parents are good size and raised on a similar feed. Obviously they will continue to grow for some time but how much size is permanently lost by not using high protein feed the first couple of months? Guess I will find out.
