The Largest and Smallest Chickens in Our Flock

I have showcased Lola, my largest pullet in two other posts. Today I would like to introduce Scout, my smallest bantam chicken.

Scout (left) on the roost is a bantam and Lola (right) on the roost is probably a commercial black standard chicken.

We bought Scout as a small chick from TSC. She was sold with other assorted bantams. Out of all my chicks, she looked the most like a chipmunk. She was small, smooth, and sleek feathered. Today she looks like a bird. She is not fully grown yet but as compared to the way the other chicks are growing, I don’t expect her to get much bigger. She is the cutest little thing ever! And so very sweet! Next spring I plan to look for more of these little guys. Does anyone want to venture a guess as to what breed she is? I was thinking at one time she might be a Wellsummer bantam but I’m not convinced of that.
