    The cockerels are reaching that stage where they tend to become obnoxious. Any possibility of separating them so they can bulk up a bit. At this point in the game they are mostly bone and feathers. Your birds look to be in great shape.

    So if I do seperate them they will bulk up? I did no know that. They are about 12 weeks now. How much room do they need to fatten them up?

    Just a separate pen so that they spend all day eating instead of chasing the girls.[​IMG]
