    They definitely do eat alot! I thought a 25lb bag of chicken starter would be too much, but it's actually good they come in that size [​IMG]

    They practically grow before your eyes. I took lots of photos so we could compare their growth one week to the next and it was loads of fun.
    I was wishing I had a scale at that time to I could also weigh them to watch their progress.
