    These are my two new Light Brahma's I realize that it's probably too early to tell their gender, but I would like to know how old they are. I got them at the feed store in a hutch of 3-5 week olds. Any help would be greatly appreciated! [​IMG]

    Okay thank you! It's much easier to know what kind of heat you need when you know the age! They didn't have them under any heat at the store, they were in a hutch in the rain! Poor little girls, they're happy now!

    I have light brahma's. I would say 3-4 weeks. This is a pic of mine when she was about 5.5 weeks.

    My Brahma's will be 3 weeks tomorrow and look bigger/ more feather out than yours? They weigh 7 oz if that helps? I think my Brahma's looked more like yours do when they were 2 weeks? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Here's a pic from 3 days ago when they were 17 days old.
