What breed how old?

post #1 of 6

What breed and how old might these chicks be? I was told French black copper Marans and Rhode Island reds but I'm new to owning chicks and I'm not sure Thanks for all replies

All look to be about 2 weeks old. The first chick looks like a Silkie. The black chicks look like Marans. The gold chick looks more like a gold sexlink.

Most likely SHE is a Golden Sex Link pullet. This is the coloring of Golden Sex Links. Cokerels are typically solid white, while pullets are golden/reddish colored. This makes them easier to feather sex (one thing I LOVE about GSLs)
Also, she's probably around 4 weeks or older. It'd be hard for me to guess age because I haven't had any chicks for a while smile.png
