    I just got my first Barred Rock chicks from Atwoods. The lady who helped me had no idea how old they are - and so I was hoping someone here could give me some idea.

    I took this close-up of her wing so you could see how she's starting to get real feathers

    Thank you - I was guessing 2 weeks - but it was purely a guess.

    I agree about 9-10 days or so. And you will LOVE this breed!

    I've got a 3 week old BR with a few more feathers than that and more spotting.
