    Is there somewhere on BYC that has pictures of chicks at different ages? Newly hatched, 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, etc?
    All I've been able to find on Google is ages of EGGS, but I'd like to know exactly how old my chicks were when I picked them out at TSC. All but 4 of them were sturdy, with 3/4" hard white feathers on the tips of their wings. The other 4 had just a bit of hard feather on their wingtips. Of course, nobody at TSC could tell me anything but "they are just a couple days old".

    If you post pictures byc members can probably tell you their age [​IMG] if they had wing feathers when you got them they probably were 1 or 2 weeks old... goodluck [​IMG]
