    I was told 3-4 months, but looking at pictures of chicks that age I'm second guessing their age. They are buff Orpington's. Just now getting their back and tail feathers.

    I have 4 Buff Orpingtons-5 weeks old. These look exactly like mine. They are around 4 or 5 weeks old. Very CUTE! I think the person meant to say 4 weeks old LOL.
