    2 weeks ago we had 75 bird delivered from JM Hatchery and on the same day we had 25 Golden Buff sexlinks from Meyers Hatcher delivered. They are either exactly the same age or maybe at most a day apart. They are now 17 days old and they are not even close in size. The broilers are getting feathered out and large and the layers are still my sweet little chicks.

    Not that I really need to say this but the layer is on the right and the broiler is on the left.
