    So i ordered 11 bantam chickens ( Japense, Dutch, and D'uccles) They came the last week in April. They have not gotten much bigger lol. I can still hold them with one hand. I have them entered in fair which is the last week of July. Will they be full grown, feathered and colored by then? Thanks!!!

  2. They won't be 'fully grown' at three months, but they will be fully feathered. As for fully colored--their combs and wattles won't be full size or colored. Three months is like late teens, but not adult.

    I would say no they will only be 3 months old. 5 months I would say at the least just my 2 cents [​IMG]
