    I'm not exactly sure, but I would guess about 2-3 pounds.
     
  3. The little guys I received last Friday weight between 5oz to 7oz. today.

    My small cameo hatched on 7-1-2016 and weighs 980 grams as of 9-4-2016.
    My smallest and youngest hatched 8-13-2016 and weighs 195 grams as of 9-4-2016.

    At 8 weeks they should weigh 800-1200 grams.

    Then I doubt they are 2 months old. Can you post some pictures?

    This is my largest 'guy' who weights 7oz. I paid for 2 months old so They would be past this age. I've been taken but these chicks seem to be better today. Hopefully(for their sake) I'm taking care of them the best I can. I scrub their retro-fitted rabbit cage daily. Vitamins/electrolytes in the water. Turkey/gamefowl starter that's 25% protein.

    If they are a 2 or a 3 and gaining weight, try not to worry. [​IMG] Can you post some pictures of their poop?
