    These chicks are almost four weeks old. They are 3 weeks and 6 days old. I am just worried they arent growing good. They are silkies.

    I make my own feed from quinoa, cornmeal, flaxseed and oats. They seem like they are eating fine.

    I am no expert but would say if they are eating,drinking and not acting sickly they are doing just fine.
