    I have about 22 chicks I bought from a hatchery (there all heavy/standard breeds) back in mid october... At this moment they are almost the same size as they were at 2 months old and not growing properly...

    I think it's beacuse I used to only feed them cracked corn..

    But I just bought a 50 lbs of Blue Seal Grower Pellets, it's 15% protein. I also sometimes give the chicks Greek yogurt.

    Will they get bigger/grow faster with the new diet I'm using for them?

    Sounds like they could be malnourished. Please research what your animal needs before getting them. I hope they make a recovery. Best wishes for their growth.[​IMG]
