    awesome Nick!!!

    I need to weigh all of mine but so far these are the results I do have from the ones I did weigh a few weeks ago and just reweighed now


    They were a little over 10 weeks old when i weighed them first time

    Ike (roo): 4 3/8
    Henny Penny: 6 7/8
    Big Bertha: 12 5/8 <---If i remember i'll reweigh her and others tomorrow

    And heres weights I just got

    Ike(roo): 5 1/8
    Henny Penny: 7 5/8
    Rosie: 6 1/2

    Ike is a tuxedo, so for right now I dont care how little he weighs, tho im working on 12+ weights in ALL my colors over time [​IMG]

    I just put my first third in the garage tonight to get them used to the cooler temps I hooked up a brooder lamp just incase its to cold. They fought me weighting and banding them I got plenty of puke on my shirt but got them sorted out. I needed to make room in the basement I got chicks due to hatch in the morning just a few from my backyard flock .
