Ok, just when I thought I was beginning to understand backyard chickens, I went to the show in Stockton today - saw A LOT of beautiful chix, saw the breeds that I have BUT THEY WERE ALL LIKE 3X the size of my girls! Saw Harmony Oaks and we chatted, seems online hatchery and feed store birds are smaller than show birds. My question is why?? I am sure it has to do with breeding, but why are $2 chicks so much smaller! Inquiring minds need to know Thanks!!
