    I don't think this is the right forum but i dont suppose it matters! Long story, but cutting it short, i would really appreciate it if someone could take a clever guess and tell me how old my chickie is please! I've had her a week tomorrow, but i dont know how old she was when i found her. her wing feathers are growing more and i an see teeny tail feathers just beginning to peek through if that helps at all. (Shes growing so fast! I had to swap her box over because she began jumping out! [​IMG])

    hmmm.... well I am only 3 but I would suppose no more than a month old. and more than a week old if tomorrow makes 1 week with you having her. I am sure that others here will help you more than me.

    Well, I may not be right but I would guess about 2 weeks. It still has a lot of fluff to it. I have 4 week chicks that has a lot more feathers than that.

    Tail feather and shoulder feathers just started poking out on my leghorns at 1 1/2 wks, my rir waited til 2 wks. However- i think this timing varies between sexes of the same breed, too. My guess is that yours can't be over 2 weeks old.
