I can't help but think the pullets I have now seem a bit small for their age. What are the average weights for an 18 week old heavier breed such as the Australorp, S. Sussex, and Sex link?

Sorry, I don't have any experience with those breeds - but you may want to check the breeds pages on the homepage and see if they list that info there or post this question under the Breeds forum?

Here is a shot of my Australorp hens, at about that age:



this was right at 18-20 weeks old...they are large birds, almost thought they were Jersey Giants

How do they compare to yours? I am not sure how much they weighed, but a good
amount...

Mine appears to be a bit smaller, but then again it's hard to tell how big yours are because there's nothing there for scale....
