This has been my first year with Wyandottes, and they were so tiny and slow to grow I wondered if they were bantams. Lol
They eventually grew and caught up with everybody else, but for a while they were teeny. :)

Thank you! I actually was beginning to wonder if she was a Bantam. Makes sense that a heavier breed would mature slower. I’ve got a 31 week old Lavender Orpington who has yet to lay an egg, while her EE sister has been laying like clockwork for over 2 months! Chickens are funny....
