    I bought 4 started pullets and M. McMurry said they are between 15-22 weeks. I was hoping someone could help me figure out the age of my new birds. I bought two Ameracauna and two Wyandotte [​IMG][/IMG][​IMG][/IMG]

    The Wyondotte looks older. Hard to tell for sure. They gave you an approximate age. Go to the thread that was suggested by Peep. :) Maybe someone is better than me at guessing age! [​IMG]

    It can be difficult to put an age on grown birds, you can't check their teeth. [​IMG] [​IMG]
