Chicken size of isa brown

Chloe & Delilah

I purchased these two girls from a local feed store, one on right her top is way lighter then the other, way bigger and has a random black feather mixed into her tail feathers and a much fluffier bum. Lady at feed store said they were ISA Browns but could it be possible one is mixed with some kind of giant breed she is huge almost half the size of my full grown hens and she is only 4 weeks old?? I LOVE THESE GIRLS!!

As they are red sex links they could each be from different parent stock breeds -- ISA browns are a red sex link which means they are the product of a gold based cock over silver based hens -- birds of two different breeds.  When you start mixing breeds you can get various results as far as how the resulting chicks grow, mature, etc. 

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?
