I picked up my RIR and Black Australorp chicks last Thursday (04/12/07) and was wondering about how old they are. They have all of their wing feathers and have started getting some feathers in the tail area and some around the neck. I was also wondering about a very bright orange spot on the top of one of my RIR chicks. Is it possible that this is the cockerel? I may be able to post some pictures later this evening if that helps. Thank you in advance! I am going to attempt to put a picture on here....you can't really see their feathers very well in this picture, but they're still adorable!
