    I have a mixed flock of chickens of all different sizes, colors, and shapes. It is amazing how they are all chicken but yet can be so different! I recently had my DH take a picture of our Rooster Krull to show off how massive he really is and my favorite chicken Mini Chicken was jealous so she also got her picture taken with me. Krull is a LF Blue Cochin Rooster, has to be over 10 pounds. While Mini Chicken is a Bantam Modern Game Hen, she is a little over a pound, so tiny! These pictures are great to see the difference in how different chickens can be! Oh, and I am pretty average in size about 5'5" in height and average weight.

    The size differences is amazing. I'm especially fascinated with the fact that no matter how much we change their physical appearances our chickens still retain certain instincts. They'll all chase down a bug, they'll all take dust/sun baths, roosters still crow, hens sing the egg song. No matter how much we manipulate their genes there are some things we just cannot change.

    Nice picture-I think the duck in the back want her picture taken, too!

    OMG, both of those roosters are stunning. [​IMG]

    I'm in the city where no roosters are allowed. But more and more I wish I could have one. What beautiful creatures. And they are HUGE!!!
