    Are there feathers on the legs? Not sure of breed, but looks about 3-4 days old. They get wing feathers fast!

    if 4 toes and feathered feet (hard to tell with the blur) looks like a red or partridge cochin to me. i'd say 3 days old.

    well the two of them that look like that have four toes , featherred leegs down to the toes and puffy cheeks. My age guess was 3-4 days too. I am considering checking if the three that were left at the store are still there. I also might get me a few broilers.
