    These chicks look about one month old? Who sells chicks this age without being debeaked?

    These are a quad of seramas that I just got from fdnick(Denna) I forgot to ask her how old they are I am sure she will let me know:) i believe they are young adults. The cats are finding them interesting as they only get to see the chickens outside. They are adjusting well waiting to hear the boy crow:)

    Quote:Debeaked? No one should debeak their birds. The only times birds ARE debeaked usually is if they are used for eggs or meat and kept in small, overcrowded pens so that they don't peck each other.

    Agreed, but, most hatcheries that sell pullets that are already 17 weeks old, will come with their upper beak snipped. I guess they don't like having to worry about pecking.

    These birds are from a BYC breeder not a hatchery Brian.
