(they enjoy scrambled eggs too) I'm confused once more about the feeding recommendations. I have 5 chicks hatched on Nov 18th. They have grown much faster than any other chicks I have raised.....One even started crowing last week. The only thing I can think of that's different from my other chicks is the percentage of protein in their feel. I always feed the medicated until they were well developed, then turned to "layer" food. The feed store I'm using only carries 20% protein, so they've been feed that after the first week or so, after I ran out of medicated. Would that explain their accelerated growth and maturity? I realize this picture doesn't do a good job of revealing their real size since it's from above.
