Relative sizes of chickens

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have 8 2-week-old chicks in my brooder: 2 Golden laced Wyandottes, 2 Easter Eggers, 2 Speckled Sussies, a Rhode Island Red, and a Polish. I know there's always differences in size within a chicken's own breed so you cant really know for sure, but in general which chicken breeds are bigger than the others, both within my flock and among all breeds? My Easter Eggers are both my biggest and smallest chicks so far.

The Sussex and Wyandotte will be your largest birds. They are same adult size.

Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.

The Sussies don't surprise me, they're both pretty big now, but the Wyandottes do! They're my 2nd and 3rd smallest chicks currently.
