They're growing so fast, it's really hard to believe they're just babies - a mere 3-1/2 weeks old. They're pretty heavy for their age and they're starting to feather out noticeably now. Not sure yet how many cockerels or pullets I ended up with, but won't be long before we will know.

I am really liking the stall pellets for bedding with this flock. It doesn't stick to everything like pine shavings, and settles like dust in the fount, not a matted mess. I use the Natures Bedding brand... i use it in the coop for my laying hens and have been very satisfied with the absorption, ease of use and quick composting qualities.
Week 3 complete, and all is well.
