    I have chickens that were hatched out May 25 of this year.
    So that puts that at ....14 weeks?
    They are 1/2 the size of BR and Cochin hens (about a year or a little over). These are mixed with the BR and a Black Jersey Giant rooster.

    When do they hit a big growth spurt?

    Jersey Giants can take six months to reach their full size. They get tall first then they get body mass. Give them another month.

    My chickens are close to 5 months old and they still seem small to me...

    One of the little sweeties is laying beautiful little eggs consistently though! [​IMG]
