The following link is on gender identification of Hy-line chicks (includes photos), & has the Hy-line Browns.

Dr Okimoto has posted in the past that he has found both eWh & eb alleles in commercial lines (DNA tested), & I would guess that the striped Hy-line Brown chicks are eWh/eb.

That is allot of great info.. thanks a ton... I sex my own chicks by color. I have two males right now that show two different colors on their body, but they both show the main coloring of being white headed... smile You could breed White Rock over a New Hampshire and have birds that have white tails... that would be Wheaten....

To compare apples with apples a small egg (yolk) means a "premature hatching" in comparison with a big egg (yolk).
That's a simple reasoning which several poultry book authors (in german or english) made already 100 Years (or more) ago.

In context to this study I would guess, that small (pullet) eggs (yolks) could have consequences to the development of the Gastro Intestinal Tract (GIT)which has limiting effects to the nutrient utilization and (growth)performance after all due to a retarded development of the immune system, ovary and finally to growth.
I would never expect,that small eggs lead to splendid specismen, which elicit us the comment "What a beauty!"
In general such size & shape doozies come from bigger eggs/yolks.
