Hi
Just wondering if anyone might have some ideas of what breed these enormous yellow monster chicks are. They are 3 weeks old, and the other chicks are about 1 1/2 weeks, with the exception of the larger black one that is exactly 2 weeks today. They are so huge that the other chicks run under their legs. I got these two from a nearby farm because the larger black chick hatched 4 days before the others, and it was so noisy and lonely that I had to get it some company. I don't mind the two yellow ones, but they are just SO HUGE!
Any ideas? Velociraptors maybe?

I thought Leghorn, but I assumed that Leghorn adults are not unusually large so leghorn chicks would be normal. These just seem abnormally large, but I have limited experience and maybe it's just a factor of coming from XL eggs. They came from a farm with a hundred or so layers, so leghorn would be pretty likely.
