    Define adult :p

    I consider a bird an adult when they start laying eggs so about 6 months old.

    Although, by definition...

    hen: female over one year old
    pullet: female under one year old (includes chick)
    cock: male over one year old
    cockeral: male under one year old (includes chick)
    chick: a young bird you still think looks like a chick!
