So the boys graduated the other week. Of the four that hatched, three were boys.
White rose, the only girl, has moved in with the layers. She is bottom of the pecking order and so is getting picked on a fair bit. She isn’t laying yet, but is eating well.
The boys were s good size. Small breasts, but the legs and thighs were great.
These chooks were speckled Sussex. If white rose lays well, I think we’ll use these to replace the rest of the stock as the girls get old. They are beautiful looking chooks, good size.
Next time I’ll take some measurements for weight gain and feed conversion.
until next time …
