Ignore their messy bed lol. This was right after changing the bottom and putting new food in, sigh...
I'm not sure if this is a breed or a possible gender thing, age differences, or just normal chick growth but I figured this may be a good place to ask :) As you see, we have 5 babies... They are young, I got them from the store on May 25th which was the day they supposedly all arrived there. We have 2 EE (labeled as Ameracauna but I've learned better lol), 1 RIR, 1 "yellow buff" is what they said I assume that's a Buff Orpington (sp?) and then 1 "barred rock". I noticed the BR is literally half the size of the extra-fluffy EE in the back and the Orpington. She is still smaller than all the others and stands straight up as pictured 99% of the time. I don't think cocc would be the reason for any size differences (I've dealt with that in foster kittens lol) I've been watching their poo and everyone seems normal and healthy.
Some other differences I've noticed-the fluffy (really large) EE in the back is starting to get a comb and the other EE is smaller, sleeker, and completely "flat beaked." Don't pick on my wording lol
Any ideas on why we have these size differences? Are they different ages then I'm thinking, is it a possible gender thing, or just normal? Again, I can post individual just let know me :)
