    Amazing, isn't it?? The only thing I've found that grows quicker than chicks are the dandelions in my yard [​IMG]

    800% and those arn't even Cornish Crosses. The little pigs I have put on about 1400% in three weeks going from about 1.7 oz to about 1.5 lb. Even at that there are faster growing strains and feeding strategies that would pack on weight quicker yet.

    The good news is when they reach that age their growth slows down [​IMG] but its not the same cuteness
