What is the age of my light Sussex?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got the Barnevelders at 4wks, six weeks ago, and the light Sussex were from someone else who told me they were 4 wks as well. I wanted them all the same age so I could put them in together, but wasn't able to because the light Sussex were double the size and I have no idea how old they are. I also ended up with two roosters I think.

They look to be about 16-18 weeks old to me.

Always happy to answer questions! You can ask me about diseases, raising chicks, feeding, and breeds!

Thank you, they were in such a mess when I got them it was hard to tell. They were half bald with sores from feather plucking and covered in mud. I was so upset to see them in such bad conditions and being fed bread, that I just handed him the money, grabbed the chickens and left. Then when the barnies arrived just after, they were beautiful, fully feathered, very healthy, but half the size.

I agree.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
