    So what do you guys think? I also ended up with 6 much much younger birds...how old do they have to be before you could tell by photo? 2 are black sex link so I'm sure what they are but 2 are partridge ee's and 2 are RIRs. They're feathered but still very small so I had to put them in my brooder totes.

    Yay! I sure hope so lol. I didn't realize how hard it would be to tell. His feathers will look better after he molts right?

    No, he's at that gawky unfinished stage right now. He'll grow his big boy feathers in a few months and be drop dead gorgeous.

    Thanks! It's been so so long since I raised chickens I'm totally unfamiliar. I got a (I think) good quality splash pullet coming and I was also gonna let him make some mutt babies with my other birds as well. He was only 15$ but the woman who sold him to me said he is from show stock so here's hoping. If anyone wants hatching eggs or babies and is willing to take some accidental mutts you can have them for the cost of shipping as long as you send me pics lol
