    Unfortunately I wasn't able to get pics.


    Yesterday I went to a new nursery type place and in the back, in a small pen, they had a whole bunch of farm animals. I was standing there marveling at all of them when all of a sudden I saw HIM. He was the biggest freekin roo I have ever seen in my life! He looked just like a BO but I swear was almost 3' tall. IT WAS CRAZY! My bf saw him and was struck speechless.


    So then, I am going to this new feed store on the way home and I'm wandering around out back and then I see HER. OMG the biggest freekin hen I've ever seen in my life. She looked EXACTLY like the roo, just like a BO but SO huge! She HAD to have been AT LEAST twice as big as my girls.


    What are these crazy freaks!??!

    I don't know, but I assume that the chicken world is similar to the dog world in that specific breeds have a breed standard, but you also get animals within the breed that are way huge or way small for the breed. Somewhere here there is a thread about Nugget, who was a cross between unknowns and was over 32 inches tall. It happens here and there.

    I'm thinking of going back with my camera JUST to take pics! I mean seriously this roo was bigger than the geese!!! LoL

    It was at a place called City Farms in San Diego.

    I just thought it was SO odd that these two completely different places BOTH had HUGE chickens that looked EXACTLY the same, AND I saw them on the same day! Weird!

    I had a blue orphington hen that was just huge. I was told that the blue black and splash orphingtons get really big but she was so huge I ws wondering if she was part turkey. I have since sold her and wish I had't because I have another one and she is black. She is 4 months old and is as big as my americauna hens full grown. She's not done growing. I need to get a roo for her so I can get more. The reason I sold the one I had before last year is because I could't find a roo for her. Maybe next year i'll get some eggs and try for a roo. I'll have to get a pic of her.

    I will definitely get pics. The place with the roo is a good 45 mins from me though so it might be a few days before I can make it over there. HOWEVER the place with the hen is like 10 mins from me, so I will have to go get pics next time I run to the store!
