    I bought two chicks at the feed store this spring, one Rhode Island Red, and one Welsummer. As they grew I said to myself, "Wow, that's a big Rhode Island Red." (We'd had one before and it was the smaller chicken in our mixed flock).

    Well, she kept on getting bigger and grew a monster comb and now wakes me up every morning when the sun comes up. She's not really a she is she?
