    i bought 10 red-star cks that were about 10-12 wks old about 8 wks ago. i thought i would be getting eggs by now. is there any way to tell how old they might be just by looking at them. they have doubled in size since i got them.

    thanks j. foley:lol:

    I hope someone answers this, because I have wondered this myself. I know that I have been sold 1 year old chickens, that I found out later they were MUCH older then 1 years old. Now that I have babies I am watching their growth to try and determine how old our first 6 were when we got them. They said 12 weeks, I'm thinking more like 8.
