    They do look like a pair, I agree. Pretty babies! I just love the boys-wish we could keep all the roosters, all the time. [​IMG]

    My DH thinks it may be due to growth rate. They are a lot bigger than some I have that are just a week behind them.

    They do look like a pair. You lucky thing! I was just wondering about these chicks and how they were doing for you.

    Thanks.
    SDSHOARS, I have several that look just like him and he may not get to stay. Just waiting to see how they turn out. Have black ones too. Where do you live?
