    Got 2 of these birds about 3 months ago from a bin of assorted chicks at local store. They are about triple the size of the other chicks purchased the same day. Legs are long and very thick, Any ideas?

    They are growing more rapidly than your other birds because they are intended to be used primarily for meat but are a sustainable "dual purpose" bird as opposed to the Cornish cross which are not a sustainable flock
