    I got them from a feed store and forgot to ask how old. They were older then the fluffy ones.

    Here are some pics today of their 1st day outdoors. I think I will keep them outside as long as the weather is nice and them bring them inside at night.

    my guess would be about six weeks also, because they have lots of their adult feathers in.

    They look like they're doing good!

    I can't wait to build our new coop and have them move in with the Hens. The Hens and the chicks met each other today and the chicks were really interested in the Hens but the Hens were nervous of the chicks. I thought it would have been the other way around. I just brought the chicks back inside and now they are sleeping. I think they had fun today!! [​IMG]

    Our chicks are 5 weeks this week and they look about like your chicks...very cute. Mine love being outdoors...and have started venturing out into the yard (outside the coop) with my supervision. They aren't afraid of our two labradors and the dogs are quite gentle around them. So cute...

    Mine looked like that around 3 weeks - at 6 weeks mine are fully feathered around the head.

    They are pretty cute though!

    I'd say about three weeks old. They're cute.

    I watched mine closely, and woudl guess they're 3-4 weeks.
    I'm surprised they sold them that old from a feed store- thought they only did babies.
