  • I am having some hatch and know color isn't real until they are older. How early can you tell about stance, etc. ?
  • As chicks, cull for weakness and sickness.
  • Pullets 6month, ckls 9months

    .Get rid of the weak ...don't help any hatch..as they are usually sickly or weak and don't make it anyway...Like funandgames says...don't cull the healthy to soon...give them a chance to mature and show there potential..Unless you see some obvious defects
