    So, I am noticing that chicks are a bit like puppies. My Barred Rock and Easter Egger have huge feet. [​IMG] But my buttercup has petite feet. She will be tiny, but mighty.
    My Easter Egger is a big weenie:lol: And my little buttercup is afraid of nothing.[​IMG]

    I have also noticed, if in a hatch you notice chicks with large feet comparatively, they usually turn out to be roosters.
