    So I have a 6 week old Black Australorp pullet and a 6 week old Red Cochin pullet that I got as chicks.

    At what age do you think they will reach their adult height and weight?
    As far as I know Australorps mature faster but as of now they are the same size.

    It's not only depends on the breed but even within breeds. I had several chicks from the same hatch and some were earlier maturing than the others. [​IMG]
