    Anybody have a chart anywhere showing standard heavy breed chicken growth rates? It's been a while since I last had chickens, and I was just curious how much larger my chicks are going to get. They're 8-9 week old Orpingtons, Wyandottes, Jersey Giants, and Brahmas.

    Seems like the higher the protein they are eating the faster they grow.
