    This is a just for fun/curiosity contest [​IMG]
    I want to see your absolutely enormous rediculously gargantuan chickens.
    I also want to see you eensy weensy itsy bitsy chickens.
    I'd love to see a nice photo with something in it for scale. Actual height and weight would be pretty neat too!!
    The birds should be grown up at least the majority of the way.
    Let's see those pics!!
    I'll be posting on Friday with the biggest and littlest bird

    She is about 4-5 months old, so she is mostly grown. Her body is about as big as 1 1/2 computer mice. She can comfortably perch on my index finger. No name yet. Any suggestions?

    The picture is deceptive because when she is standing next to the Zatarains box her head comes only to the word New Orleans.

    This is my largest chicken. Freddy, tipping the scales at a whopping 1 3/4 pounds. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This is Squeak. It's hard to get a pic of her because she's camara-shy. [​IMG] She's a bit flighty, too, but this is the best I could find.

    She's a bit of a mess, but you know free-rangers. Can't stop downing the bugs for a minute! [​IMG]


    About two years old, Black-tailed Buff Japanese Bantam. Not allowed in the house so an actual to-scale size (height and weight) is difficult to get.

    Two of my mille fleur d'uccles. The cockerel is staring at the back end of a buff orp hen. Size? Knee-high to a grasshopper.
