    Hello! So I've been wondering how old these chicks are. I believe this is my 3rd weekend having them, so they have to be at least 3 weeks old. They look like they might be ready to move out into the coop this next weekend, but I'm worried about Gaby, the golden laced Wyandotte. She's smaller but not as feathered like the others. I live in Oregon and it's getting between 30's and 40's at night. So I may have to wait until their 6 weeks old. Wow I kind of got off topic, but it would be nice to know how old they are ^^

    (Here's pictures of them outside for the first time)

    I would guess around two months give or take a few weeks?

    Oh gosh, I don't think they're two months... I just got them as chicks around 3 weeks ago.

    Then if you got them as chicks 3 weeks ago I'd say they're three weeks old,

    They look older than 3 weeks. Perhaps 4. Where did you get them, did they have any feathers on them when you got them?

    The two bigger ones are 5 to 6 weeks. The younger one about 4 weeks. They are all old enough and feathered enough to be in the coop without supplemental heat now. No worries

    I got them at Wilco. The Mottled Java and the Wyandotte had no feathers at all when I got them. They looked a few days old. The Easter egger on the other hand had more feathers on her wings than the others.
