please, please, PLEASE! post pics of your chicks about 8-9 weeks old! I have chicks that age and they seem to small they look like 3 week olds! I really need to see other chicks to see if they're the same size or mine are tiny! please!
Stormylady, well I think they look the same! its cuz last spring babies I gave half of my chicks to my friend and his hens started laying since january and they were bigger! when mine where about 10 wks old they could still fit through the holes in the fence!!! while my friends chickens where about 3x bigger then mine! and I thought that it had happened again this time! but im still not sure if they are the same size as yours, I will post pics in about an hour! some of my chicks fit through the holes on the fence but maybe because of their breed because those are the only breed that fit trhough the holes! the rest can't! ok I have
Brown leghorn - don't fit through the holes
Black Australorp - don't fit through the holes
Buff Orpington - don't fit through the holes
Delawares - don't fit through the holes
White Leghorns - FIT through the holes well hardly fit through them
Ameraucanas - don't fit through the holes
and I believe those are it.
actually I will post pics later I don't know if in an hour or later
Hi again, My chicks will not fit through a fence, however the leghorns are the smallest ones and there suppose to be early layers? that I have. The leghorns just tend to be a little smaller I think. Please do post pics. I would love to see them. Sandy
