    I had 4 hatch from you and they look just like your pictures. I do have a question. The chicks are 1/3 of the size of the buff orpingtons that hatched the same day. They are even smaller than the bantam silkies born on the same day. Do white Orpingtons run smaller than the buffs?

    Quote:Not that I'm aware of but I only have Brahmas to compare them to and they were a little bigger but nothing significant. They shouldn't be smaller than bantams though. They are a standard size. I don't know what could cause that except maybe heat in shipment or something incubation? I'm just guessing.

    They are very healthy otherwise. I am sure its just a fluke and they'll catch up soon [​IMG]
