    nope, they are all the same size. I don't know how old they are, just that she didn't have them yet when she bought my welsh. They are a bit bigger than my cayugas, but not lots. I didn't know if you could tell from their faces. The only one I ever had before was a huge, evil drake.

    The Drakes get more of the ugly on their face and are another time bigger. I would say they look like ducks. Even when their babies the drakes legs are thicker.
