    For those interested in pictures of baby chicks and who want to see how fast a chicken really grows, we have started a weekly series on our Facebook Page showing how fast a chick really grows. We have selected 1 Blue Jersey Giant, 1 Buff Orpington and 1 Splash Ameraucana for the series. Check it out on our Taylor Hobby Farms facebook page or follow this link: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Taylor-Hobby-Farms/109574719123308 We would love your comments.

    Yes, we started with Day 1 yesterday using chicks from our personal hatch on November 15th. After another week has past, I will try to put the pictures side by side on our website.

    We are up to Week 6 now. We will probably continue until April. I think it is simply amazing how fast they grow. You can view the slideshows at our website at http://www.taylorhobbyfarms.us/apps/photos/

    If it says not found, just click on "How Fast They Grow" at the top of the page.

    We will probably try it again this fall with 3 other breeds.

    We are up to 24 Weeks old on our first series "How Fast They Grow" and have just started another one for a Black Copper Maran, Blue Olive Egger, New Hampshire Red and Gold Laced Brahma chick. We are up to 2 weeks on those. You can view the series at http://www.taylorhobbyfarms.us/apps/photos/

    I think it is fascinating to see the side by side pictures of the growing chicks.
