After looking at their weights and growth rate I was surprised. I would have expected them to grow at a more steady rate. I haven’t done weekly weigh-ins in a few years, we just weigh at 9 weeks to determine timing for butcher. There is nothing wrong with it being so un-steady, especially since they easily reached butcher weight in time, but it is strange to me. So I am planning to do weekly weigh-ins on the next litter to see if they gain at such an un-steady rate.
