    How old do you think this EE is? You can see the feathers on the wing.

    I had 2 chicks getting feathers already at 2-3 days old too

    Ok, thanks. I thought they didn't get feathers until closer to a week old. These were my 'day old' chicks I got from the feed store. I am glad that they were not brand new, but was just curious as to how old they really were. Thanks!

    It probably took a day or two for the feed store to get them, so they are probably 3 days old. Mine from TSC had the start of feathers when I got them too.
