    I got from craig's list a couple months ago. They have grown, and they just went through a little mini-molt.

    Have they laid yet? My guess is that they are around 5 months old. But, they could be much older, and just not laying right now (and therefore have smaller combs and wattles).

    They are not laying yet. Here is a photo when I first got them :) [​IMG]

    Legs have gotten paler and combs a bit more red but still pink.

    Thanks :)

    When you got them, I think they were about 14 weeks old. Add to that age to however long you've had them, and you should have their approximate age.
