    My cornish x were 2 weeks old yesterday and the largest weights 15oz and the smallest is 10.5 oz. Does these seem right?

    Okay everybody, let's play with Jackiedon's mind and not answer this!







    Okay, alright, I'll answer it, but only to bump it up for our dear Jackiedon who hardly stinks at all...

    that sounds about like what mine were at 2 weeks. they are at almost 7 weeks now, and you will be amazed at how big they start getting after 4 weeks - it seems that they almost double in size then. i did lose 2 at about 5 weeks, but don't exactly know why,

    i am feeding 12 hours on - 12 hours off feed, and have been since about 3 weeks. some are starting to show signs of leg weakness at this point, so have upped their protein, as per someones advice.

    i'm hoping that they all make it to nov 7th - processing date.

    good luck with yours!

    oh gosh, I've never weighed any that early... all I can say is all broilers seem to just explode in the last 1-2 weeks
