    Of my 5 that are grown, top to bottom,,, Buff orpington, buff orpington, easter egger, easter egger, barred rock. Sounds like it's out of order, but that's it

    Of the 20 girls (almost 9 weeks old), seems like a couple of the Black Australorp's are ruling the roost. And they aren't even close to the size of the Buff Orpingtons, Easter Eagers, Cuckoo Marans, or RIRs. The Speckled Sussex will throw themselves to the front for treats (except for Maggie (a regular Houdini) who is often outside of the run doing her own thing).

    It'll probably shake out differently once they start laying.
