    I don't take the best pictues but wanted to show off my week old Cochin 'runt'...
    he is really 1/2 the size of the others....
    hope you can see that...



    look at their leg size difference....

    a side view would have been better but I was lucky to get this.....using a different camera....

    is the runty a girl? their legs have the build of a girls even though they are a runt.[​IMG]
    when they get to teen agers,the little one will have no doubt caught up with the others if not passing them by in size. :D

    one of mine had unknowingly at the time come from an inbred maran flock and he;kanner was born quite undeveloped,the poor lad had pasty butt,and severe intestinal shedding with coccidiosis and he was to weak to go outside at the usual time,but now he is a gigantic,healthy and popular cockrel who thinks he coud take on the house and win. :D
