Okay, I'm raising a replacement silkie chick (Gertrude) for my flock, as I traded one of my larger "bully" chickens at a show. she's around 6 - 7 weeks old and weighs only a little less than 7 oz..... I have a feeling Silkie chicks around this age should be bigger. she has food and water 24/7...... any input on how big your silkie chicks were at this age? any food I can feed her to boost her size/strength? she just looks so feeble... Oh, and I will not cull her. Thanks in advance!
