    I have seen bunches of 'giant' chicken pics on here, but I really can't tell the actual size. If possible, I would like to see pics of them next to something comparable, like a yardstick or something! Sometimes I can't tell bantams from giants on here.

    It's not a yardstick, but a Min-Pin will give you some idea of this bird's size.


    Oreo's my big boy. In fact, he got so big that one time he managed to get himself stuck in the little opening to go outside. Poor bird was stuck halfway in the door. Needless to say, we had to get a bigger door. [​IMG]

    How much does Oreo weigh though? [​IMG]

    I'll get photos of my two biggest boys tomorrow or the next day. I have photos of them, but not next to a commonly sizeable object by most audiences. One is just plain tall, the other is just plain huge. [​IMG]

    Quote:Well, he's losing a bit of weight now since he's getting kinda old. (Six years this April!) Nevertheless, he's still a very hefty bird. I'd estimate him weighing roughly five pounds as he is right now.
