    At what age do chicks get their full adult colors?

    I haved a wyandotte, Easter Egger, and a buff orpington. My first two dont have what I would consider distinguishable coloring to their feathers at 1.5 months old. I am curious as to what they will look like as adult hens. When will they get their full coloring and feather patterning?
