    I got 17 cornish rock chicks today at a local feed store. They were unsure of the age except "1-2 weeks". There are some that have longish wing feathers and tail feathers and others that have short wing feathers and no tail feathers.

    Any ideas of age? Thanks.

    Definitely not experienced but I have 15 that are just now 2 weeks and they have lost a lot of fuzz and grown tail and long wing feathers in the last 2 days and are attempting to fly, if that helps.

    Thanks for the reply and [​IMG]

    I just want a guesstimate so that I know when to start changing their feed.
