    Hi! I am brand new to raising chickens and look forward to joining this awesome community! I currently have 13 chickens. I have 2 that I am unsure as to what breed they are. I bought them at Agway and the salesman did not write down the name. The 2 chicks in the pictures are about 3-4 weeks old. Thanks for the help if possible.

    Also, if anyone can tell what gender they are that would be great!

    I think it's way to early to tell the sex yet, Wait like 2-3 weeks and then try again IMO!

    I don't know enough to answer the breed question, yet. But they look only days old to me, not weeks old.
    You might try going on to a site that sells chickens and looking at the day old chicks pictures.

    I will try to look on other sites, thanks for trying. I have had them for 2 weeks now, I bought them when they were more than a week old, so I know they are somewhere around 3-4 weeks old!

    The pics aren't that great, but I think the first is a Partridge Rock. The second is a Gold or silver laced wyandotte

    The second one isnt a SLW, not sure about the breed. But looks nothing like a SLW chick.

    I was thinking the second was a gold-laced wyandotte. My GLW was slow to feather as well, but turned out beautiful! Darling babies!
