    Does anyone know how old the chicks are when they are first offered at Tractor Supply? I bought 6 there yesterday and when I asked all they could tell me is that they got them in on Wednesday, which doesn't really help me at all. They are very tiny, with only the tiniest of feathers on their wings. I'd like to know how old they are so I can keep track, you know?

    I would guess that they were about 2 days old when they arrived in the mail at TSC. That is what I guessed for mine.

    Once they are hatched out they are sent directly to feed stores etc. I would guess no more then two days old when they received them.
