    Well, I've been basically guessing at the age of our chicks and then started to wonder if maybe I was wrong. So, what do you think? I've been leaning toward 5 weeks...

    I'd say your close, about 4-6 weeks.

    Quote:Thank you! I like them so much more than I thought I would (Shhhhh! Don't tell my kids!). Look at how curious and friendly they are, too. Guess you can tell how often I'm poking around there with the camera. Poor things can't get a moment's rest what with all of us harassing them all day [​IMG]

    They look like they are about 6 or 7 weeks of age. [​IMG]
