    I have 2 3 week old silver laced wyandotte pullets and 2 buff Orpington the same age. The buffs are twice the size of the Wyandottes. Was wondering if the wyandottes are normally slower to mature than other breeds.

    I have hatched a Huge amount of both at the same time----they grow about equal for me. Are you sure your Wyandotte's are standard size and not some kind of bantam?

    They are supposed to be standard. Maybe buffs are a little older.

    Now if this is possible---that's your answer. A week or two makes a difference at that age.
