    Just snapped some new pictures of my babies [​IMG]
    I think they are the cutest things since teddie bears [​IMG]

    I was told my chicks may be white rocks. Is that what they look like or could they be leghorns or something else?

    Thanks

    They act like meat birds too. They lay in front of the feeders eating

    Here's some of them about 8 weeks ago

    Oh so meat birds tend to die of heart attacks or other illnesses from being too fat?

    Is this true?

    I will not process them. Rather I will put them on a diet and try to reproduce them mixing them with good layers maybe Ameraucanas to make a good all around bird if possible.

    OK so my females are mallards and meat hens.


    How are the eggs from meat hens and mallards?
    How often do they each lay eggs?
