Chicken Breed Size Guide

Heavy Breed

Heavy Breed

Heavy breeds tend to be bigger than the light ones as they are bred potentially for eating purposes, while the lighter breeds are developed as pure layers. Typical heavy breeds eat more than light breeds and are less likely to fly.

Light Breed

Light Breed

Typical light breeds are easily spooked so can be more awkward to handle than the traditionally more docile heavy breeds. Light breeds also tend to eat less in comparison to heavy breeds.

Bantam

Bantam

Bantams are smaller versions of certain large fowl, usually only a quarter of their size. Bantams are primarily for ornamental and aesthetic purposes, but are perfect for those with smaller gardens and space available for poultry.
