    I got these 2 chicks from a breeder who was over loaded. She said they are silkie/Cochin mixes. The why one is supposed to be 4 months and the buff in is supposed to he 2 months. I think they look younger than their estimated ages. What do you think?

    The buff looks around six weeks to me. The other bird looks a little younger than four months, but I'm not sure.
