If you feed them they will grow.
They are not close to big enough to start laying or to be butchered for dinner but I think some of them have tripped in size in the last 9 days.
We did lose a total of 3 birds. We ordered 30 birds they shipped us 31, but one died in transit. We lost 2 more in the first 4 days. So we are down to 9 Cornish cross meat birds, 4 Wyandotte pullets, 5 Jersey Giant* pullets, 5 buff Orpington pullets and 5 buff Orpington cockerels also for meat.
*the smallest birds right now are the Jersey Giants, by the end of summer they will the biggest birds still standing.
