Can anyone tell me approx how old these are? We got them Christmas eve & forgot to ask!
Glad you could join us here! I would guesstimate about 8-10 weeks as they are fully feathered but possibly a little older as their combs look to be developing well. Are these your only chickens? Have you just started out keeping?
Good luck for the future and enjoy your time here on BYC
Lovely young birds, hope you're enjoying them!
Yes, this is all very new to me!! We only have the 2 RIR's...(we had also purchased a black & white but a neighbors cat got it within 1hr of being home
G’Day from down under divamg13 Welcome!
I agree with the others in that they are just youngsters.
I am so very sorry to hear that you lost one so tragically and so soon. I love cats and have two of my own but do not start me on cats that are allowed to wander and are not contained within their owner’s property
Anyways, I just wanted to add that it might be an idea to try and get another hen or two if you can. Sadly, we do lose our feathered friends along the way and if you only have 2 and lose 1, the remaining chicken can be very lonely and a mad dash is required to find her a friend and having to waive quarantine etc .. been there, done that, got the T-shirt and now have 5 little bantams
Did you check out the Learning Centre? Some great articles and reference points there: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
You might also want to say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.
I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends
Greetings from Kansas and ! Pleased you joined our community! Fine looking birds - best of luck to you!
