    Hi there,
    I just purchsed some baby chicks and have no idea how old they are. They are all starting to get their wing feathers in on the tips.
    Any guess on their age? [​IMG]

    Amazingly, chicks start feathering out as early as day 3, maybe earlier. I saw mine having definite feathers that early. Guess that when I really took a notice. Maybe they started a little earlier and didn't pay attention.
