I bought this chick on May 1 (see pic) Is he deformed? Do chickens carry extra chromosomes sometimes or what?? Surely a cockerel, but I have 6 week old BLRWs that I cannot say what they are yet!? He is huge next to the other two! 1st pic is of the bunch on May 1 (bottom three are the GLWs).

It could be a different breed than the others, I have one baby of 8 that all of a sudden started growing so fast and big, now at 12 weeks he is twice the size of the others and weighs 4.5 pounds already. I think hes a blue production, but man he grew fast compared to the other chicks. Your 3 gold Laced wyandotte are roosters, I have one too. Love him to pieces, he never starts a fight but will quickly end any squabbling. I call it the peace keeper. Hahaha :) good luck with your chickies.
