    They will be full grown in about 6 months or so but will still gain some weight and maturity for the next 6 months past that. They will start to lay, mate, and crow at about 5-6 months old.

    How are the babies doing? They warm up to you yet and follow you around? Their siblings spend all day on the porch wanting back in the house! They've been outside for about 3 weeks with their older siblings free ranging with the adults.
