    Hello everyone.

    This year I finally decided to raise chicks instead of buying pullets from a breeder. My buddy and I went in on an order from Cackle hatchery. I bought Bantams and he just got regular EE. Problem is they shipped them in the same box and I cant tell who's is who's.

    Common sense tells me the smaller ones are mine but someone just told me that some chicks may be as big as standard breeds.

    Can anyone help me on this.

    I've gotten a lot of bantams over the last few years and always my bantam chicks have been half the size of my standard chicks. [​IMG]
