ive ordered two different batches from two different hatcheries and compared to my other chicks the are smaller and much weaker. is this common for this breed ? Do they outgrow it or are they a weaker smaller breed as far as rocks go?
thanks

I don't think they're weaker or smaller, not mine anyways.

They are more aloof though. From day one, they don't want to have anything to do with me. But that's cool...with so many chickens it's nice to have some that aren't constantly underfoot and they sure are beautiful.

Mine are smaller. I have EEs and Cochin to compare them to, and they are smaller and slower growing them the EEs, but the Cochins are slow too.

I dont think they are weaker, just slower developing. Mine seem to be a bit scittish compared to the EEs, but the grown ones I have are friendly.
