    Just thought I'd share a pic of our egg layers at day 17. They are all between 5 and 7 oz now. We've been weighing them each week along with our meat birds that we got at the same time just for a comparison. The difference is amazing in their growth.

    Here's one of our pearl white leghorns.

    And this is part of the group of 5 white leghorns, 4 red star, and our EE (we guess)

    Weighing is not their favorite process.

    Here is the meat bird in with them for comparison in size.
