    I'm mainly concerned about the age of the lighter ones.

    Thanks. That would explain why the black ones are so much smaller still a month later.

    Thank you for the responses. I've passed the info onto their owner. He's happy to know that the bigger birds are probably old enough to go out now (they are 6 wks old and we live in the deep south and seem to have skipped spring once again).
