    I do not know how old exactly they are but I am pretty sure they are close to 2 months old or more. Oldest to youngest from top to bottom of pictures.

    Quote:I am afraid I don't know. I bought them as chicks and didn't bother to ask what colour breed they were. I'll have to ask the lady I bought them from one day.

    Thank you everyone for replying. I can only hope that they aren't mostly all boys and you guys are wrong lol

    Can't have roosters where I live, sadly [​IMG]

    Edit: I have a link to a slideshow of my chickens in my sig. It shows before and after pictures.
    It might help to see what they used to look like.

    I'm thinking the partridge is a girl and the blue under is a pullet also. The one does look like a cochin/silkie mix. That looks like a rooster.
