    It is 13 weeks old and has become much bigger than the light brahma/blue cochin mix bird. I have been told it was a black sex link pullet but I can't believe how big it is compared to the other bird the same age. It doesn't have feathered feet and is really a calm tame bird. Its feet are dark with the soles of the feet yellow. I bought it in Atwood's 'Heavies' bin.

    A nice rounded breast.

    A good view of her feet. Until recently her/his legs looked black

    Hard to tell from the lighting but it has a greenish sheen to the feathers. The feathers are also fluffy.

    That's a black sex link pullet.

    Any chance the other bird is a bantam?

    The other bird is a standard size mix of light brahma and blue cochin and it is 2/3rds its size.
