About what age do chickens start getting their type??
One year is general rule on most breeds I think, though some mature late like Brahmas and may take longer to really know.
It depends a lot on the different breed and whether it is bantam or large fowl. I would have to say that a bird should be typey enough to cull at around 5-6 months for pullets and 6-8 months for cockerels.
Having said that- I know that my large Old english games take a little longer, up to a year for males. My modern bantams are cullable at 6 months easy.
