    Hey yall. This is my first post since joining BYC. we just got our babies on Monday. I was hoping you could tell me if you think they are 1 or 2 weeks old. I know it's not that big of a deal but hoped the more experienced could tell easier. Thanks. We have 2 of each bread but I'll just post 1 pic of each. Thank you!

    I'd say they're not over a week old, they don't have a lot of feather development, and they're not very large yet either. They're all very cute!

    I would say the first is five or six days old. The EE is closer to two weeks. The third may be almost a week or the same age as the first. The last one may be less than a week or a few days old, but it could also be a boy with slow wing development.
