It appears they're both mixed breeds. :) As for age, I'd guess around 5-7 weeks, give or take some?

I have them quarantined since I have other birds. I noticed one is sneezing and sounds congested. The one that has these symptoms isn't acting ill. They come from Columbus Georgia and I live in North Alabama. Could it be due to the climate difference? Should I start a medication? I'm definitely afraid to let the chicks around my original birds due to this I don't want any sick birds.

You may want to consider posting a thread in the "Emergencies/Diseases/ Injuries and Cures" section of BYC for the best answers. :) I personally wouldn't immediately jump into meds unless I knew with certainty my birds were sick (showing visible signs of illness/feeling poorly). However, others might feel differently, namely the medically-savvy members. In the meantime, quarantine is your best bet.
