PostSubject: Moving chicks   Tue Jan 24, 2017 8:30 am

I've got a pair here that are feeding two chicks, now, one is what I would say is the right size for its age , 4 days, the other is still quite small, my dilemma is, do I try and move the small one or just leave nature take its course and hope it catches up with the other one

its at a crucial stage as it will be still getting crop milk at 4 days and would need to be moved under something with exactly the same hatch date ,if it was my choice I would let nature decide

I would let nature decide, also bear in mind that if it's a cock and hen in the nest, some times the cock can be quite a bit bigger.

Just had a quick check and the one is probably twice the size of the other, although there is food in it so I'll just let them get on with it

It will catch up with its nest mate so long as it has been reared right it should be OK remember not all big ones are good small UN's win just as well

Question !!!.  Smile  Smile Did they both hatch close together etc if so I would rate one as being a weed as such "Bin" if hatched 24/48 hours apart I would swap it with another pair if possible nearer it's own age. Cheers.

I think you have already decided what to do - but for me. I would leave the smaller one just where it is and see what happens.
