    I was given 4 baby chicks today. I was told they are "barred rocks" and "white rocks".

    Does that look right? Also, I need guesses for their age. They are extremely fluffy, and one of the white chicks is getting wing feathers.

    Oh, and I could not find food for them today (feed stores were closed), so I am giving them plain oats (crushed, but not powder). Will this be okay until tomorrow?

    I've heard cooked eggs/egg yolks is good for them.

    Definitely not barred rocks. Barred rocks are black.

    Possibly EEs? Do they have greenish legs and/or fluffy cheeks?

    The darker ones look like younger versions of my EE/Ameracaunas.
