    Stormylady, well I think they look the same! its cuz last spring babies I gave half of my chicks to my friend and his hens started laying since january and they were bigger! when mine where about 10 wks old they could still fit through the holes in the fence!!! while my friends chickens where about 3x bigger then mine! and I thought that it had happened again this time! but im still not sure if they are the same size as yours, I will post pics in about an hour! some of my chicks fit through the holes on the fence but maybe because of their breed because those are the only breed that fit trhough the holes! the rest can't! ok I have

    Brown leghorn - don't fit through the holes
    Black Australorp - don't fit through the holes
    Buff Orpington - don't fit through the holes
    Delawares - don't fit through the holes
    White Leghorns - FIT through the holes well hardly fit through them
    Ameraucanas - don't fit through the holes

    and I believe those are it.
    actually I will post pics later I don't know if in an hour or later

    Hi again, My chicks will not fit through a fence, however the leghorns are the smallest ones and there suppose to be early layers? that I have. The leghorns just tend to be a little smaller I think. Please do post pics. I would love to see them. Sandy

    Leghorns are smaller birds, but they lay big beautiful eggs. My leghorn hen doesn't miss a single day! She's the smallest bird in the hen house, and lays the largest eggs.
