    I got a variety of 27 chicks almost 5 weeks ago. I lost 4 and am down to 23. Out of these, the one Silver Dorking roo I ordered is twice the size of all the others. He is really large - and seems to be maturing much more quickly. He's also the least skittish out of the flock and is very laid back. Here is a picture of him at just over 4 weeks old:


    And this is a picture of him next to a Golden Penciled Hamburg:


    Just thought I'd share a picture of my first confirmed rooster. I'm really happy he's so nice and so good looking. I hold him every day in the hopes of keeping him gentle.

    Thanks for looking,
