    Are you showing them in 4-H? This was our first time showing in 4-H and we worried about our chickens' size, but we brought home Grand Champion pullet pen with 4 1/2 month old Cherry Eggers and many other Grand and Reserve champions.
    I'm not sure there is anything to make them grow faster.
    Remember they will grow quite a bit in the next month, what day is your show?
    Let us know more details and we'll help all we can!

    I hear mixing Turkey Starter with their chick starter helps them boost up and feather out fast! GL
