    Good morning, my silkie hatched a fertile egg labeled Light Sussex and this giant is what we got [​IMG]
    I felt pretty sure she(?) was a pullet but she is enormous compared to my Chocolate Orpington who is already 6 months old. Seems to walk quite upright, dominant personality and has huge legs so I am having a few doubts. No distinct crowing but she did just make a suspicious noise while standing out in the yard.
    I would love a few opinions. I am learning so much from this site but I am still very much a "newbie"
    Thank you in advance!
