Hi would love if someone could help identify my chickens. Chicken 1 was sold to me as a silver sussex pullet about 10 weeks old, I am having doubts if this is true as she is half the size of my other 10 week old chickens.
Chicken 2 was sold as a 13 week old lavender sussex pullet, she seems more slender in body than my other sussex pullets.
Thanks for your help.

could the silver sussex be a bantam? and yes the lavender sussex looks more pointy than usual

The silver could really be anything and I wouldn't have a clue, I've only had commercial layers before these. The lavender has actually started getting a rounder/fatter body shape the last week or so and is now making adult chicken sounds.
