    My 3 month Old LF salmon favorelle is tiny. He is only a little bit larger that a female bantam Cochin of the same age. I also have 2 BC Marans that are at least twice his size. Is it normal for SF cockerel to take much longer to grow and mature then other breeds?

    Sounds like he's a bantam, not large fowl. That's my first thought.

    I ordered him from MPC as a LF. I thought that he might be a bantam but I don't think MPC carries bantam SF.
