    Mine are 4 weeks and they have a bit less feathering on the neck/ head. They don't have their combs yet either. Maybe 6 weeks? Just a guess....

    4 weeks. See the little white, whispy feathers at the end of the new feathers? If you kind of roll them between your thumb and first finger, they'll loosen and come off. If you do it GENTLY, you can 'help' them by pulling GENTLY. Kinda like their momma would do. Mine really liked it....

    I say about six or seven weeks. Mine are 4 1/2 weeks old and they have a lot more "baby fluff" on thier heads than your beauty does. [​IMG]
