    I can't get over how much food these 5 and 6 week old chicks are eating!! They just finished a fifty pound bag of starter crumbles! There are 5 of them. It's just like having human teenagers in the house. I am switching to the grower now as I don't want to purchase another bag of starter. The black copper marans feet are so big compared to the lavender orps I have. Does this correlate to the size they will grow to be? It's kind of funny/cute, like a puppies overgrown paws they have to grow into. [​IMG]
