    If those are white feet they should be a buff orpington which is a bigger bodied, heavy breed chicken.

    They look about 1.5 - 2 months old to me.

    I have some 1 month old blue orps that stand taller and bigger than a quart feeder.

    They grow big.

    Oh yeah, sorry they're buff orps. Not laying, I was hoping he'd accidently sold us an older one cause there is a big size difference between those two.

    Does when they start clucking mean anything? The bigger one clucks already, the little one still peeps.

    It means they are slowly growing up! They look about two months old to me, at most 10 weeks.

    I'd guess two months. Really cute babies.
