Anyone have an idea how old these Rhode Island Red chicks are? I bought them 12 days ago from a local distributor who told me they were just a couple of days old. Given how quickly they have gone from peach fuzz to feathers, and how large they are, I'm thinking they are older than the seller said. It hardly matters, except I like to understand their age versus their development.
