    Mom thinks we have a tiny roadrunner hanging with the girls. I was wondering what breed she is because she's going to be the smallest of the group of 7 hens. She'll be the white one on the block next to the ramp. I'll try to get better pics but she's fast.[​IMG]
    I know it isn't very good but I'll try to get one later tomorrow afternoon.

    Just from what I can see, I'd hazard a Leghorn maybe. Where did the bird come from, hatchery or breeder?

    Yeah, I'm staying with Leghorn pullet. You'll get a ton of white eggs from her here in a few months.

    How big do you think she'll get because she's looking kinda smaller then the rest

    They do tend to stay slender and petite compared to other breeds but she'll probably grow a wee bit more.

    I think Leghorns top out around 4ish pounds, mature. They're bred to eat practically nothing and churn out eggs.
