The three bigger girls

In the comments Sophie asked if the game girls were bigger in size than bantams usually are so I thought I would do a comparison of size between the three bigger girls. I would say that they are the usual bantam size although bantams vary a bit. My vorwerks were smaller in size than my current bigger three girls.

The Wyandottes were chunky but not as tall as the game girls. Speckles and the game girls are about the same height but Speckles is slightly slimmer. The game girls have thicker legs than Speckles.

Ebony, Speckles and Flame

There isn’t much difference in the size of these three girls but you can see that Ebony and Flame have thicker legs.

Sometimes it is easy to forget that these girls are bantams though because seramas in comparison are so small. I like to see the mix in the flock and to see the bigger and smaller girls getting along. Size doesn’t seem to effect the harmony in the flock at all.

    They are such a colourful flock, and think it is more interesting having the bigger girls as well.

    It does add a bit more variety and it means I also get a good supply of bigger eggs. Ebony and Flame both laid again today. They both lay in the middle nest box and there was a bit of fuss when they both wanted to get in at the same time. I wonder what it will be like with twelve girls laying next year. It’s going to be interesting.
