    Not necessarily. That is not always an accurate predictor in hatchery stock birds. JG are much larger than BAs. Unless the scale in the picture is very deceiving or she is much younger than she looks her size very much indicates BA.

    Quote:^ this also! Hatchery stock tends to be poor and very seldom (like 1 and what seems like a million) do you get a nice bird.
