    Is getting a Serama chick's weight a big deal?
    My chicks are 6 weeks old an I just took weight for fun just to see if the smaller chicks now turned out to be smaller adults later. here are their weights

    Boys

    Andre (Frizzle) - 3oz at 6 weeks
    Rocky - 4oz at 6 weeks
    Shiloh - 4oz at 6 weeks
    Rayne - 7oz at 6 weeks

    Girls

    Cassidy - 2oz at 6 weeks
    Hawk - 2.5oz at 6 weeks
    Casey - 3oz at 6 weeks
    Miracle - 3oz at 6 weeks


    Also my Buff Mottled pullet, Star, who was hatched late May early June

    Star - 13oz

    Are these good weights so far?

    Quote:Unless you have an established strain your chick weights will not do you much good as strains develop differently.

    Star is already over the 12 ounces sought in pullets and has a lot of growing to do yet.

    There is a 20% over and a 20% under weight before DQ at table top judging at Tier II for the SCNA.

    In coop judging at open poultry shows do not weigh.

    Hi, I was wondering what the weight of your birds is now? I also have 6 week old chicks and I'm curious how big yours got. My boy is 4oz and the 2 girls are 5.
