    We have Broiler chicks to show for 4H.[​IMG] The show is next Thurs. 2/5/09. [​IMG]I am afraid they wont be ready for the show. It seems like they have stopped growing.:confused:They are 4 weeks today and have almost completely covered in new feathers. But they are still so small. :/Does anyone have any advice or encouragements.[​IMG]

    They are on HOMEGROWN STARTER/GROWER with 20% protien and a vitamin/electrolite that I add to their water.

    Could it be that they are to crowded? I might need to get rid of some.
