Are these Speckled Sussex normal sized for how old they are?

    We have 4 Speckled Sussex that are going to be 12 weeks old in two days. Are they the right size for how old they are?
    Also, if you have pictures of yours around that age, post them for me! [​IMG]
    Do these pictures work:

    pictures won't work straight off your computer like that. You can upload them to photobucket and then use the img tag to post them here. [​IMG]

    Nice. You'll really see them grow like mad now for the next 8 weeks. Make certain they never run out of grower.

    I'd say yours are doing fine. Here's mine at 8 weeks. 2nd from the left is a cockerel.

    Hmm. Yours are bigger, and younger by 4 weeks.

    They look good to me. Here's a recent photo my SS, Penny, she just turned 4 months.

    Quote:Some of your chickens look like their tails aren't as developed as the others, but all of the combs look good. They may be a little older than you think they are, just based on how the comb looks (compared to my one SS), but otherwise I think their size is fine. Make sure they have access to feed, maybe they aren't eating enough. [​IMG]
