    These are the replacement chicks for the 3/6 sexed pullets I got that turned out to be roos. I don't want to find a home for another roo. Why is their size so different and why does one such big leggs??

    I picked up the one brown EE on Thurs then decided should brooder two, so I went back to the feed store Sat and pulled the butterscotch colored one out of the EE bin. They are from the same weeks shipment from Ideal. Did I pull out of a banty bin and not notice??

    Or is the brown one allready legging out like roo???? Why are they so different??? They are two weeks old:

    Help!!!

    I say the littler one is a Bantam. But, I am by no means an EE expert [​IMG]

    The legs on the brown one are so much thicker than the blonder one that it makes me think Standard vs Bantam.

    But I defer to the experts [​IMG]

    Oh my gosh I hope you're right. Would you see such a difference between cockrel and pullet at two weeks?
