    We just got 10 chicks, but weren't told the age. We also don't know breed except that at least one parent is a Rhode island red. Two are orange with brownish coloring, four are pretty straight orange, and four are black. Can anyone help us tell the age and breeds if possible? I will get better pictures tomorrow to help. These are our first chicks ever. [​IMG]

    Can't guess breed, but look 7-10 days old to me.

    Thanks. We will try contacting the breeder we got them from. He might have just had a busy weekend. We got them Friday. I'm guessing figuring out the sex isn't going to be easy. At least from what I've read on here.

    If you get close up photos of individual chix and post on what Breed is this forum, you'll get some opinions.
