    Sorry if this is in the wrong area, please feel free to move if necessary. Anywho...

    I weighed one of my pullets today and she was only 4 pounds. They just turned 20 weeks, and have free access to food 24/7 plus free ranging and lots of treats including BOSS. I just switched from Starter to Layer as I got my first egg last week. They are Silver Laced Wyandottes.

    I thought they would be bigger by now?

    How do I fatten them up?

    How long before they are considered full-grown?

    Thanks!

    After all she isn't a bred for meat Cornish cross that only lives past about eight weeks before they fall to feed induced heart attacks.
