Why is my chicken so small?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have had this Wyandotte hen for three years now and she is 5lb. She was normal in size and growth as a chick and has always been 5lb. as an adult. I didn't realize she was supposed to be bigger until this weekend when I saw my friend's Wyandotte and noticed she was significantly bigger. Is she a dwarf or something?

A lot of feedstore birds tend to be much smaller than the "Standard" Sizes, I would say shes a bantam but Bantam Wyandottes are about 2lbs XD

A proud member of 4h and a strong bearer of the Pacific Northwest and its Cold, not to mention a chicken mommy of 3 Cochins, 1 Sicilian Buttercup, 2 Bantam EE, 1 RIR/EE Mix, 1 Mille Fleur Booted Bantam, and 2 bantam OEGB's, a Black Bearded Silkie and a double laced silver Plymouth Bantam!
