    I would guess around 3 months. Usually at 4 weeks, chicks still have fuzz around their head and butt.

    I hate to say this...but none of those look like Japanese. They look like Old English game bantams, possibly mixed with Jap. but I'm not sure. [​IMG]

    I would say older than 4 weeks for sure. Probably closer to 3-4 months as stated above. I second they do not look pure Japanese, but also not Old English. Probably mixes.

    I agree with the others, I have Japs and those are not pure, some mix. They are a lot older than 4 weeks.
