    That is my little girl named Pickle. The guys at TSC swore up and down she came out of the Bantam Assortment, but they also sold me a Buff Rock as a Bantam who is becoming a regular sized Roo. [​IMG] He is gorgeous though.

    Anyway, Pickle is 4-5 weeks old in this pic I took tonight of her sitting on my hand. My hand is folded strangely in the photo(for her comfort) but I was just wondering if she looks to be a Bantam or a full-sized chickie. I know she came from Privett Hatchery, and they advertise Barred Rock Bantams, but I'm just curious to know what you guys think.

    ^^That's what I was afraid of, too, but the other Barred Rock(supposed Bantam) I bought with her has a much bigger, redder comb and much more wattles. He also picks fights with my Buff Rock cockerel and Pickle does not, so I think she is likely just a comb-ey looking hen. *crosses fingers*
