    There used to be one on the internet, but it's no longer up, and I can't for the life of me find another one. Does anyone have any tips on figuring out the age of baby chicks and chickens? [​IMG]

    LOL! I got these from TSC, and they didn't give the exact age.

    Don't have a chart and it varies between breeds and sex some. The first week mine worked on growing wing feathers. Second week it was tail feathers. Third they started getting feathers on their backs. Week four the feathers on their breast started filling in. At that point they look like little buzzards with bald/fuzzy heads. Their heads were the last visable spot to get feathers and took about 2 weeks to fill on their heads.
