    I have about 8 White Pearl Leghorn hens, 3 roosters, i was wondering how big they get, because they are a lot smaller than all my other chickens that are the same age, my roosters are already crowing and have big combs and waddles. There almost 5 months old and have very small faint in color combs. Is this the way they grow or something wrong?

    white leghorns are very small chickens. pullets are supposed to top out at like 4lbs, unlike most dual purpose layers which are like 5.5-6.5lbs.
