    I picked these up on Thursday. The seller said that they were hatched on Monday. I think they look older though. They are already trying to fly out of the brooder whenever I uncover it (especially the Plymouth Rock ones) Do you think they are older than a week?

    Two Buff Orpingtons, two Barred Rocks, and two Easter Eggers are pictured. I am supposed to get two Bovan Browns to add to my flock in about three weeks.
     
  9. Yep, I'd say about a week old. Mine were a week old when I took this photo of our EE, looks similar in feathering to your first picture.
