ooops! Oh well, was fairly certain the black one wasn't a silver laced. I have no idea on age....they're a bit bigger than my 6 week old bantam chicks which I hatched myself (from uncertain eggs....poultry auction again!) but other than that I have no clue... I've checked them all over and they all seem very healthy but....thinking at least one of those 2 brown ones is a boy
Sorry! Pic four, I meanHmmmm.... At least all the guessing will give me something to think about for the new few weeks! I'll keep you posted.
While everyone is being so helpful; this motley crew is the others I was telling you about, the eggs I hatched. They are clearly a very mixed bunch but can anyone hint at what breeds are in the mix. So far all I can guess is barred rock...perhaps and light sussex. They came from small white to brown eggs labelled fertile bantam eggs. I am pretty certain I have at least 4 boys but its so hard to tell when they're such a jumble of breeds! They are 6 weeks old. Some of them you can probably just about see (pic three might be best) have got this sort of 'tufty' bit on the top of their heads, like a polish but not so profuse - sort of cone shaped. If that is useful!
