I'm curious to know what to expect... I have a RIR only 4 mos old. I once saw a rooster (not sure it was a RIR) that looked like a GIANT next to the hens. He was 2 ft tall at least.

Most of my roosters are at least two feet tall if not taller. My old man RIR rooster RU (hes 5) is 2 feet plus. We recently got Jersery Giants and I know the breeders rooster had to be close to 3 feet tall. We have a few and can hardly wait for them to grow. My giant cochin Dutch is also over 2 feet tall. So are the Australopes.

I don't know in inches.....

But my Araucana rooster comes up to my knee. I am 5'5"

But, my bantam cochin rooster is not even as tall as my hand span


I would tell you to go to my chicken page, but when I was trying to edit tonight, I sent my poor little cochin rooster to outer space.


I hope my daughter can fix it for me tomorrow. Or better yet, I can get some more recent pictures of him.

Hey guys I was wondering if you could help me.
From a child I have always wanted to have really really tall chickens what is the tallest breed of chickens.
