    Is this possible? I have two Cxs that are much smaller than my others. One is about 1/2 the size and the other almost 1/4!! Do they come in Bantam?? Kinda defeats the purpose!! LOL

    Also, I thought Barred Rocks were standard size? I have one that is either a Bantam or growing MUCH slower than the others I have.

    Here's a pic next to my Welsummer of the same age:

    And here with a Barred Rock and a Spitzhauben....

    I don't know then ... I think that's what the cornish bantams are, aren't they?
    A picture might help, though. [​IMG]

    They don't come bantam and I would think that if they did they would have more leg problem than the adults do...

    Quote:Actually the one that I think is a Bantam is doing great, but he is also not putting on the weight like the others. I also don't have him in the 'meat coop' with the others because he IS so small...lol

    He might have been a packing peanut to keep the others warm...
