    I found these chicks in our coop
    this morning. Any ideas how old they might be?
    Thank you

    Hello Julia and Welcome to Backyard Chickens!! I am not at all good a guessing age of young chicks, but I would say no more than 3 days old. Do they still have their egg teeth? I hope you enjoy Backyard Chickens as much as I have and have alot of fun!

    Probably under 24 hours old, since you just noticed them today. They likely hatched under that hen last night.

    Most likely about 24 hours old, no more than two days. How well are they walking?

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    They are definitely still quite young, I'd say 1-2 days.

    Well that was certainly a nice surprise. Welcome to Backyard chickens. What color roosters do you have? Maybe we can figure out who's papa.
