    Mine are anywhere from 7 - 10 weeks old and i am wondering when i can stop turning the heat lamp on at night. It is in the 40's at night and 70's during the day, they are still in the garage until i intergrate them with the rest of the gang.

    i don't really think it's an age thing. it's more like, are your silkies and brahmas fully feathered? each chicken is different.


    with that said, my 3 light brahmas are 6 weeks old. 2 of them are pretty much fully feathered and one is still lagging.

    Silkies never feather out [​IMG] Seriously, I think at around 1 month old...
