Our little meaties continue to do very well!  I’m still very impressed with this breed so far.  At three weeks their average weight is 387g, up from 233g last week.  They’re growing so fast!!  And everyone is still alive.  🙂

Just yesterday we moved them from their brooder, which they were clearly outgrowing, to an outdoor shed.  We’d like to give them a little more time to finish feathering out with a heat lamp before they go into tractors.  They seem to be settling in with little trouble.

In other news, the eggs in the incubator went into lockdown today, and should start hatching on Friday.  Mama Hen’s babies are due about the same time.  Super excited!
