    This bird was sold as a Barred Bantam Cochin 2 weeks ago at the age of 5 weeks. She is now easily larger then my Partridge Bantam Cochins who are approaching 10 weeks old. Shes also just shy size wise of my 3 month old Lav. Orp. and 2 month old J.G. I tried getting a juxtaposition between the partridge and the barred but it was tough. What do ya'll think?

    I'm going to say large fowl unless the person that sold her to you was wrong on the age and she is actualy older[​IMG]

    That looks like a large fowl to me. However, I'm not sure that "she" is a she. The comb seems rather red for a ten week old pullet.
