How old is my polish chick?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

This is Henrietta. We got her from a local farmer at a trade day and he said she was 2 weeks old. That was a week ago, so she should be three weeks, but she has a lot more of her feathers and is a bit bigger than all my other 3 week old chicks. Can anyone help?

This was her a week ago

It looks like it is around 5 weeks old.

Are Polish chickens a bit smaller than other chickens? Henrietta is still bigger than all of the others, but she seems small for a five week old.

Henrietta should have been named Woodstock. Sure looks like Snoopy's little friend.

 

My guess is Woodstock, er, I mean Henrietta is three weeks old in her most recent photo, making her four weeks old now.

 

Gosh, what a cutie!

I love it! If she/he turns out to be a roo (because she's my favorite and staying no matter what) then she/he'll definitely be renamed Woodstock.
