When I raised our first backyard flock I searched the internet for a pictorial history of chick growth. I recall that I was able to find only one and the pictures were of poor quality. We are starting our replacement flock this year and now I can't find any. So, I decided to record week-by-week growth of this flock of Golden Buff and Barred Rock chicks, at least through the time where they are ready to join or replace the main flock. In my experience with introducing new birds to an existing flock, the size of the new birds is very important and so if we decide to keep the birds from the original flock the new birds will be of the same size as the adults. The pictures and any related information will be posted and shared here.
