    Hi there--I am just getting started with week-old Buff Orphington, Golden Sex Link and a Black Australorp.

    The Australorp is looking considerable smaller than the other two.

    Can someone who knows this breed let me know if this is normal?

    Thanks!

    How much smaller? Perhaps the strain or perhaps it is a bantam?

    She's about 30% smaller. The buff orphington and and golden sex-link are pretty close in size although the buff has more fluff.

    Worried about her.
