    I'm new to chickens and could use lot's of help. I bought these 5 chicks from a breeder. They are now 8 wks, 5 wks, and 3 weeks old. Two of them are growing much faster than the 15 SFH I have raised and they are far more boisterous. I am confident the gray baby is SFH. I would love to get second opinions about all of them from the folks who know. Thank you for any help you can offer me.

    8 week old.

    I don't know what they are, but they look kind of like what I'm breeding for. But I don't think they are my stock. However, I have shipped some chicks and eggs out, so hard to say. Where are you located? I can probably tell you based on that.

    Do they look like SFH to you? I'm in N. California and drove to central to get these chicks.

    Look Swedish to me. I sent some to San Diego area so probably not from my strain. :)
