    I'm very sorry, if I've posted in the wrong spot, i didnt know where to post this.

    So is there away of finding out a birds age by looking at the bird itself?

    I have 2 silkie girls that ive gotten a few days ago.
    but I don't know how old they are.
    is there anything in particular i look for?
    Any help would be great.
    Rose and Thunder are the girls that are in question.

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Judging from the size, I'd say 2 - 3 months. Maybe closer to 2. Silkies are one of the larger bantams, so they should get about twice that big by maturity.
