My meaties will be six weeks on Friday. They seem a little small to me...I am thinking they look more like cornish hens rather than rotisserie dinner. They have been on Purina Start and Grow and have moved outside this past week. They did not like being cooped up away from the other chickens so I let them out today to free range and they are loving lying in the sun and eating grass--however I think they are still small. I once got a surprize chick from another hatchery and that chick seemed like it doubled in size every week---(he disappeared at about week four from the yard)--Did I miss something? Is the growth spurt yet to come--by the way they are VERY active--they fly around and jump and play a lot...I have read other descriptions where all these birds do is sit and eat and get rid of waste and then gorge some more, what gives???
