    Hi there. I have 2 Buff Orpingtons named Stav and Aviv, and one Silver Laced Wyandotte named Elvira. I'm watching them do their chickenly thing and I'm noticing that Elvira, while slightly smaller, seems to be maturing faster. Is this common for the breeds they are, or is Elvira just a fast grower? She's got her little rose comb and is making a sound between a bawk and a cheep, hilarious.

    Some breeds do mature faster. I love it when their voices change. So cute!

    Bawk! Thanks! I was wondering what was going on, must be the different breeds.

    My SLW matured pretty fast as well, but it took her almost 9 months to lay an egg:(
