Bird A: is under 3months of age and hasn't had its first molt so the barrings are still present so i would say around 2 months 6-9weeks

 

and

 

Bird B: is even younger all though the barring is more recieded the beak and cear colours suggest that it is very young possibly not fledged so i would say 3-6weeks.

 

none are adults because the barrings and cear are not fully developed.

 

hope to find out the true answer,

My guess would be:

Bird A: 6 - 12 weeks, head bars still present

&

Bird B: 3 to 4 weeks, still in nest. Babe still has that cute baby black beak.

???How did I do? :glare:

umm very interesting answers. I'll let some more people try before answering. Any thoughts on gender?

Great post and I will take a stab at it.

 

I think they are the same age (Laughing out loud) around 5-6 weeks old. The bottom one is throwing me off because his throat spots are rounder then usual baby ones but the head bars and the back beak indicate baby. Plus he looks like he has been dining on carrots or a veggie of some sort :glare:.

 

 

 

as for gender not sure but I will simply guess, the 1st one I can't see very well looks boy but could be girl and the B. I would say male.

okay Bird A is 39 days old and what I would expect from a normal at this age.

A Young Cock

Bird B is 26 days old. The features on the head is what I find amaising. I haven't seen a normal with hardly any baring. This is what I would expect with a Spangle or Opaline but not a normal.

Going into show aspects, the width of head and depth of mask is nice and also the spots at this age.

A very nice Young Cock.

so I estimated them too old but good to know thank you Daz.

Now on with the barring you know Merlin's barring was very light too. Now he is a dominant pied but that is certainly very close to a normal and I figured he would have dark barring but it was light like yours.

 

See the picture

There you go, all my chicks to date have had baring, except for the opalines and spangles. There is always something new and exciting in this hobbie. Thanks Lovey. :)

Damn I missed it- was reading through thinking about them then.....the answer. Top one is a spitting image of my boys- I would have said about 32-34 days for the top and about 21 for the bottom both definate males. Mine have the black beak and cere for quite sometime too. (also very light barring)
