    I posted this on another thread also.
    ]If these 3 birds stay small will they be able to breed? I would love some mini Japanese !
    Shogi is tiny 9 oz ( m)
    Sagie is 6.25 oz ( m)
    Kakio is the smallest at 5 oz ( f)
    They will be 8 weeks on the 7 th.
    My largest are my other roosters
    Kia my btb is 15 oz
    Negi my naked Grey is 14.5
    Haku is 13.25
    My known hens
    Kagume is 10 oz
    Lady Eboshi is 13 oz
    Mononoki is 11 oz
    Mae is 11 oz
    My unnamed btb females both weigh 12 oz
    The 3 unnamed black / gray girls are 9 oz.
    They have access feed 24/7 and plenty of water and some treats. I placed down extra feeders in case of unobserved bullying. I do have a high rooster count so far 5 boys to 10 girls. If that matters.

    Does anyone know what they should weigh at 8 weeks?
    Thanks in advance. [/I][/B]

    If they are like their parents---it took breeding for them to get here----maybe I do not understand the question??

    I had read that sometimes smaller birds don't produce viable eggs...
