    Can anyone help me to determine the age of these 3 chickens. According to what the breeder told me the Sussex and Blue Leghorn should be 9 weeks now and the Rhode Island Red should be a few weeks older than that, but I'm not sure if that's right?

    The breeder should know
    Anything else will be a wild guess

    That looks like it could be right.

    Ok cool, Thanks a lot!
    The reason I was wondering was because I also have a Faverolles and a Barnevelder that I bought at 5 weeks old and I've now had them for 6 weeks but they are still smaller than these 3
    (about 2/3 size).
