    My banty cochins are 2 months old. Im hopeing they do not get any bigger. At what age will they stop growing and reach thier full size.

    My guess is that they are fully mature when they start laying eggs.

    Banties grow faster than large breeds but both reach close to their full size when they start laying so about 5 months. Although they will gain some pounds and continue to mature for about a full year.

    POL chickens are kind of like 17 year olds, they might gain a few inches and a few pounds but you have a pretty good idea of what they will look like. [​IMG]
