    Hi
    I have 5 baby chicks that are about two months old! One of them is double sized although they were the same size when they were 7 days old
    Could it be a rooster?

    Hmm. Hard to say. Did they come from a hatchery order? If so, it's possible one is a large fowl and one is a bantam.

    Hard to tell from that photo what we're looking at.

    Did you hatch these chicks yourself? Or did they come from someplace else?

    Are they the same breed? Several look pretty different.

    Sometimes you'll have a runt which will be significant'y smaller than the rest. Just can't tell much from the photo, sorry. Wish I could be of more help.

    Hi there. Can you get a closer pic? Maybe we can help if we could see her a bit closer. Right now in this pic you can't tell.

    What kind of shop, a feed store? A pet store? Did you ask them what breed they were? Can you call them now and ask, would they know?
