These two are only a few hours apart. The smaller one I had to help out. He/she only took up about half of his/her shell space and would never have hatched without assistance I dont think.

The big one is Latifah, though by the looks of her I might have to change her name to Lincoln.

double bummer if this is true, because I think she is black, and I can't keep a black roo.

Anyway.....they ended up both growing into standard size hens. The small one stayed small right til they were about to lay and then did some catching up.

These are Orpingtons. I think they are both black, but the large one may be a dark blue. Time will tell. And yes, I am sure my Peanut will eventually become more "normally" sized.
