    I know this isn't a good pic as my Leghorns won't stand still - but are those their wattles coming in? They are 4 1/2 weeks old.

    Thanks. Yes - they hatched on 7-16-11 so they'll be 5 weeks old this coming Saturday.

    There is no reference for size in the pic but they look as developed as my 14 week old WLH pullets.

    This pic was taken at 13 weeks.
