    I'm wondering if anyone might be able to tell me how old she is? When we bought her from the feed store they told us nothing but how much she was and where we could go get her at. That was is no help no nothin we did it ourselves. She seems to be a pretty good size. Her neck was like that when we got her. Thank you all

    Your hen looks to be at least 6 months old--I would guess that she is somewhere between 8-10 months of age. However, once a bird gets past 4-5 months, they change very little in appearance, and it gets harder to tell how old they are.
