I know different breeds are different sizes. I have mostly heavy breeds - australorp, buff orp., delaware, barred rock, etc. How tall do they get in general?

Those breeds are generally between 12 and 15 inches tall. The roos may be a little taller.

Thanks - I looked at about 15 websites and could only find averages weights! (and Snowy, your RIRs sure are purty, too!)

I'm just curious....


Where are you taking the measurement? From ground level to the top of the back or to the top of her head? Comb included or not?

Thanks!
