I bought6 chicks from the local ace hardware and I think 4 are mislabeled, how old do chicks have to be before with can get an accurate id of them.

It depends on the breed, some chicks you can tell just by looking at them when they are day old others you have to wait until they are almost fully feathered. If you post a picture of your chicks we could have a go at guessing.

The one that was sold as New Hampshire red looks right, I'm not sure on the 2nd one though. Could you get a better photo?
