Hi everyone! I have some questions. I brought 8 Buff Orpington chicks home from our local farm supply store Thursday. When I asked how old they were I was told “I think they are 1-2weeks.” I know that our chick days started March 1st. I’ve been looking at my crews feathers and tons of pictures and I am almost certain that a majority are older than a week. My question is, can you get an idea of age based off of the feathers that they have in and/or size? I am using the EcoGlow as my heat source. The chicks do not show signs of being too hot or cold right now. Since I have less control over the temperature should I pull it once they are fully feathered, sooner or later? Also, should I keep a light on or turn it off at night? I’ve read that the BO matures a little slower than other breeds and that dertermining the sex can be tricky until you have an egg or crow. At what age should I have an idea? When should the combs start developing? Some of mine are orange at “1-2 weeks” while the others are more of a very pale orange??? I’m hoping for a roo...which leads to my final question...if I get more than 1 out of this bunch can they be kept together or do I have to get rid of him? I live in the country so I don’t have to worry about neighbors or ordinances. Thank you in advanced for your help!
