I bought a couple of chickens from a breeder at a local ranch. I think she lied to me about the age of this Wheaten Maran. She said that it was the same age as my Blue Splashed Copper Maran and yet the Blue Splashed already has its foot feathers almost fully grown in whereas the Wheaten's foot feathers are just starting to grow. I think the Wheaten is way younger than the Blue Splashed. Here's some photos...What do you all think? When should I expect to get some of my first chocolate eggs? The Breeder told me she was a month away from laying and I think that she's at least two months old and it'll be a while til' she starts to lay. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Angela Oh no. I'm a new user and can't post photos yet. Darn it. Anyway, maybe you can tell me what to look for and how to tell a chicken's age by looking at its physical features. Thanks.
