    Hi there! I"m very new to chicken raising and I've got a nice little mixed flock of 11 chicks, 5 of them I acquired from a guy who is breeding his own. He told me that one is an easter egger and the other one is cochin bantam (It's not that I don't believe him but I think they are a mix that he didn't intend to breed) and that they are about 3 weeks old (That was a week ago so now they would be almost 4 weeks). They are beautiful and I love them so much! =) Can anyone tell from the pix if the age and breed i was told is accurate? I just need some input from people with experience..Thanks so much!

    The two brown ones are the ones i'm asking about

    I'll be in the barn!
    I *think* all appears to be pullets and around 4-4 1/2 weeks old :)

    Bella and Lacey look like Cochin mixes.
