    My mature midget white toms are in the 20lb range, my hens are 9-12lbs. Is there anyone who has a mature tom under 15lbs or hen under 8?

    It depends on age, really. I have had bourbon reds come out on the small end, with 12 pound toms and 8 pound hens. They grow so much more slowly, that they may seem mature, but still have a little room to grow.

    I've never raised midget whites, but I know my Bourbons tend to be smaller than my black spanish. I haven't had enough in quantity of blue slate or royal palm or narragansett to make a valid size comparison.
