    We are a week into our first flock. My husband picked them up from a farm not too far from our house. The lady told him they were 10 weeks, but they look huge! Is this how fast Wyandottes grow, or was she taking advantage that he wouldn't really know what he was looking at? They are pictured here next to our 6 week EEs.[​IMG]

    Yep, those are 2x4s. Aside from diseases/ mites etc I'm not worried about them being together, if anything we are excited for eggs sooner!

    Gotta love how pretty those Dottes are! It wouldn't surprise me if they are ten weeks. Mine were fully feathered at about six weeks, if memory serves...they just grow fast.
