Hi everyone! I have been a lurker for a month or so and I finally regestered today! My question is at what age do the TSC/Farm stores sell their chicks? I ask because I went to the farm store and could not resist buying some litle ones! These are my first babies! I do have 20 older big girls, most given to me. But the babies are growing so fast I was just wondering their aprox age.

When I got them they were about the size of my palm and cute little fuzzy things. Now(about a month later) they are almost fully featherd out and about 4 times the size!!


I truely have no clue on age with these being my first chicks and all!

Thank you so much in advance!

I also have to say this site is an awsome place for info!!

It sounds like you got them within the first week of their lives. It depends on when TSC got them in the store. I think they arrive as 1 day olds.

I agree with debakadeb - - probably a week or less if they were still fuzzy. Their wing feathers come in first, often starting around 4 days or so, then body feathers.

Good luck with your new babies!
