    [​IMG]HOLY COW! Ok, so I think we have a Dino on our hands, that or someone's been in the steroids. It's almost as tall as our geese. I'm not sure if these two are Black Brahmas but they resemble our Light Brahmas. They are nearly 16 weeks old. The size difference between the two are crazy. This giant sounds like a honking something or other when you pick her up (well, we think its a her) So my question is, what breed, gender and is it normal for it to be so much bigger than her/his sibling?[​IMG]

    Maybe big girl is a boy. I've heard Brahmas are slow to develop? Maybe a much bigger comb coming. Do they have Brahma bantams? Are the chicks the same age, from the same breeding?

    Not Brahmas, they have pea combs and your birds have straight combs.

    I think the big bird may be a cockerel. Can we get a profile shot?

    What do you know about their background? Are you sure they're full siblings? Or just hatch mates, possibly from different parents?

    They look like Cochins from what I can see. Little bird may be stunted, big bird may be normal.

    Apologies, they are hatch mates. We went to the local feed store...we picked up 3 of these, 3 of those and a couple of these. I snapped pictures of the signs to make sure to remember what we got.(we bought, Hamburgs, Light Brahma's, Cuckcoo Marans and Americana's) Somehow, these 2 aren't like any we picked out. This one is larger than any of the other 26 chickens, even the one that turned out to be a cockerel and has been singing his morning song for weeks.
    Ps. Thanks for everyone's input, I hope someone can figure out their breed[​IMG] This is a picture of big bird next to our Roo

    Maybe it's a Jersey Giant? Although they don't feathered legs. [​IMG]

    You've got Black Langshans. After seeing the broad side shot I have no doubt. Classic Langshan shape! Pic is of my rooster, that board in front of his face is 28 inches from the floor.
