    I have several different breeds of chickens, BR, RIR, NHR and so on, I also bought several EE's 11 weeks ago and noticed that they are a bit smaller than my other breeds at that age, are they typically a smaller chicken the regular breeds? [​IMG]

    EEs are a mix and sometimes they're mixed with a lightweight breed, which is smaller than the heavyweight breeds you have.

    Mine are all gynourmous, but I have some that mixed with laying breeds, and their offspring are dainty.
