    I got them a week ago today at the feed store and didn't ask how old they were at that time, but they were fluffy little downy things with no feathers. Now, their wings are pretty well-feathered, but nothing else is. I'd love to show pics but have no digital camera. Any idea how old they are? They're pretty active and even pop up in the air a little bit.

    Do you know what breed they are? At one week my EEs have lots of feathers including tail feathers, but my barred rocks had none.

    Oh yes - they have tail feathers too. One each of: Buff Orpington, Silver Laced Wyandotte, White Leghorn, and Black Sex-Linked.
