    Those who've kept track of wts of their colored rangers or dual purpose birds.

    Average wt at two days? Ours was 40g
    Average wt second week? Ours is 75g

    Does a bird that starts out small, remain small, and end up small?

    I've got one that started large, is still largest at 9 days, 95g.

    Anyone track early wts on their colored rangers, I'd just like to compare. Not so much that these are being raised as meat birds - though flunkies will go into the meat pen. But because most folks with layers and pets don't keep track of wts.
