    i cant see well but it looks like they still have their egg tooth . that takes a day or two to fall off/ dry up whatever it does. definitely under a week. can you see an egg tooth? little bump on the top beak at the end.its what they use to break free from the shell

    Not very old at all. How long have you had them? I would say 3 days old, 4 at the most.

    Agree, at this young age just let them eat all the chick starter they want. When you do start feeding them anything besides their crumbles then you need to offer chick grit as well.
