    Just got these from the feed store. I know they got them today, they came from privett like my other chicks.
    The feed store insists they have to be 1 or 2 days old, privett says this is normal. My dom and aust didnt get these till like a week or 2 old????

    Is this normal feather growth at this age?

    Looks like my chicks did at a day old. Mine are going to be 2 weeks old and they have full wing feathers and some tail feathers and are getting back feathers. So I would say that yes, it is normal. That is just my opinion.

    I'd say it's normal. When I look over all the new chicks at the feed store there is quite a variety of wing feathering, so it's nothing to worry about. [​IMG]

    I would say in thoes pics they are 3 days old. They are truly day olds if they have their egg tooth.
