    My chickens were sold to me as bantams but I've had some people tell me they look to big to be banties. I am just curious what you think. I tried to snap a few photos next to a gallon milk jug for scale. It was hard to get them still and next to the jug so hopefully these photos will do. So tell me what you think? The much larger chicken is my rooster. The others are hens. Thanks![​IMG]

    I think they maybe standard size, but I would wait for another opinion :).

    Yeah. I figured out they are Barred Rock and Buff Orpingtons. I've got one other that is either a BSL or some mix breed. Curious.. What's LF stand for? Thanks for the replies by the way.

    Howdy mountainbunny yep, put me down as a vote for standards also.

    LF = Large Fowl.
