    I don't know if I have two standard-size or bantam cochin pullets in my flock.

    The girls seem quite small for their age (4 or 5 months old, not sure) if indeed they are standard/giant size - they are bigger than my 18-week old silkies but not by much, and definitely smaller than sexlinks of the same age.

    Could they be bantams?

    Or are cochins just very slow to grow and mature?
