At what age do chickens stop growing?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

We just got back from the 4H fair, and my 5 month old Orpingtons and Australorps are nowhere big as the hens there, but they just started laying.  At what age do chickens stop growing?  Thanks in advance!

1 husband, 1 lab/bordercollie/frisbee-nut dog, 1 BR, 2 EE, and 2 Red Stars.  R.I.P. Pearl the BR, 11/2/2008.

Arrived 3/25: 2 barred rocks, 2 australorps, 2 buff orpingtons, 2 red stars, 1 silver laced and 1 gold laced wyandotte!

They stop growing up at approximately 7/8 months but will still fill out for another few months months. All birds are different.

If your feeding them good they can be full grown at 6 months or it can take a year or more when rashining(spelling?) food. Breeds ar different to. A production leghorn or a cornish can be grown 2 months an a new jersey giant may take well over a year.
