    I bought two silver laced wyandotte pullet two weeks ago named Silver Star and Clover, They are getting huge they have all the wing feathers and tail feathers are in, they are getting the neck feathers and chest feathers in right now, They can fly about 3 feet off the ground. So if anyone know how old they are hardly go under the heater while the other 4 does still. Thanks in advance for you help. [​IMG]

    From plenty of experience with this breed, I'd say just shy of 3 weeks old. They still have a bit of their natal down, but the wings are fledged. 90% of my flock are Silver Laced Wyandottes. We kept a good blog on our chicks' development last year, with lots of pics as they grew up. (and we are raising more of them this year too)
