Growth rate on Palominos

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Ozarkansas » Mon Aug 21, 2017 9:31 am


So my first Palomino litter is 9 weeks old. I have been feeding them 18 % protein feed because they are my meat pen project and I thought it might help them to grow. They now wiegh about 4lbs each. Their mom weighs 9lbs 8 ozs, and their dad is just under 8 lbs . So half adult weight at 9 weeks is an excellent growth rate to me. What do y'all think?

Yes, I think that is pretty good. How many were in the litter?
