    so we bought 8 chicks from Dell's back in march. they are doing beautifully, I just have always thought they seemed older than we thought. When we bought them on wednesday the 16th and I was sure the lady said they had been hatched on monday the 14th. This picture was taken on the 18th... I am looking at their wings and thinking they may be a bout a week or so older than I thought.... what do you think? [​IMG]

    if those pics were taken on supposedly day 2, i agree that they do look alittle older. [​IMG]
    my guess would be around a week but no older
    but they are CUTE [​IMG]

    They look like they are almost a week old to me. Our chicks that we recently bought look about the same age as those chicks. Ours are 5 days old.
