Do you have "big headed" Easter Eggers?

    In our mixed flock, I have three Easter Eggers that are a year old, and eight that are 11 weeks. One of the adults and three of the youngsters have "big heads" --- they look more like hawks than chickens! Even the beaks are bigger. All pullets. I'm going to work on getting photos today, but I wondered if anyone else has observed this feature in any of their Easter Eggers?

    Is the skull larger, or is the feathering make head seem larger. Here is a pix of mine. Do you consider this regular, or large???
