    Ok call me nuts but I just went out to the barn and weigth my x-rocks crosses which are 4 weeks old
    ok here what I got

    OUT OF 3 X-rocks Cross LT B / weight is in KG =high of 414 --379----and 278 kg

    the buff X-rock Cross 261 kg

    ( I'm know thinking this is a RI RED CROSS LT BRAHMAS ) and NOT an x-rock cross

    white no feather feet X-rock cross 379 kg

    Reds well I have 3 and one I'm thinking is a X-rock cross and the other 2 are RI R
    293 kg and the other 2 are in at 252 and 257 kg

    my black chicks which I'm thinking are Bl. Jer Gaints Crosses with either LT B or RI R
    these two weigth in at 267 and 662 kg


    Yes I did hatch a variety of eggs x-rosks .....standards egg layers and a few bantams in which at the hatching time they where mark who was who but after hatching well really not sure but I thinking my keep a lot on this lot of chicks I should be able to see who is who and from what .

    the next time I will keep them separated

    I think he means lik 0.414 kg and so on. Here is a conversion chart. So this is saying that his birds are running between 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 pounds each. Hope this helps you.

    thanks ya'll

    just a slip up of fingers to brain LOL

    SO WHAT YA THINK do ya think these x-rock x -crosses will match up to the rock -x


    I just receive 20 x-rocks chicks today ( wife wants to kill me said I have way to many chickens ) she right but I'll never tell her that ) she want to know where all these birds are going after they grow up I told her most in the freezer and some for my raising & breeding ,
    well she said not sure how many you expect to place in the freezers ...............anyway
    why I not sure I have to many already but I trying to figure out what my x-rocks crosses VS X-rocks from Murry mc murrys
    which would be better to raise and if I get the same growth rate ..seeing I start with there x-rocks

    but then again Thanks ya'll
