Hi! Please help me age my bantam mixes. I have a bunch of 17 week large fowl chickens that I did a ton of research and planning on. Then on August 1st I went to a chicken swap and fell in love with a cute turken mixed with bantam roo. Research and planning went out the window. I decided to purchase him and I got him a friend, a random bantam female from the same lady. The next day I ended up taking a friends bantam/turken mix who also purchased her from the same lady. At the swap I was told they were all around 8 weeks old, give or take a week. The only problem is they don't look that old to me. When I got them they looked like my 4 week old large fowl chickens did. I've had them 2 weeks so now they'd be around 10 weeks old. I haven't had them under a heat lamp at all, but they've been in my basement which is somewhere between 65 and 80 degrees throughout the day. The two girls were mostly feathered out but the boys back only had pinfeathers when I got him. I'm guessing because they have some bantam in them they just look younger to me? Anyone have a guess about age of these guys? Anyone have pictures of their bantams or bantam mixes around this age? In 2 weeks when they've done 4 weeks of quarantine can they go in with my big girls? Can bantams eat pellets? Anything special they need that large fowl don't? How well do they do in bad winters? Here's the pictures, all taken a few minutes ago unless specified otherwise. Random bantam, female: My free bantam mixed with turken, female: My rooster, bantam mixed with turken: The roosters back. It was covered with pin feathers when I first got him, they're slowly growing now: Originally: This was a few minutes ago: All of them: Thanks!
