    Hey everyone! I picked up 3 new GLW chicks for my flock yesterday. I’d like your opinions on their age. So far they only have their flight feathers in, everything else is still down. See photo below. 4EDA5DAD-7F94-40FC-8DD1-90F6434760C0.jpeg

    About five days old, maybe a little less. By a week, they should have visible tail feathers, instead of just a slight puffing

    Cuties.
