    Thought I posted on New Member already, but I am not sure. So I'll just post it again. It's all new to me. We got 4 chicks 2 weeks ago. They are between 4 and 5 weeks (I think) I was wondering what their breed looks like. I posted it under "raising chicks" I think. There are pictures there too. If you can take a look and let me know if anyone recognizes them as a breed type, (I know that two are cochins and they are both real loves) the other two are not as friendly and I think one might even be a rooster. Of course I can't tell even at this age, since I have never owned chickens before. Any suggestions are appreciated. BTW, when can they move outside they are about 4ish weeks not all feathers yet? Our temps are still droping down in the low 40's at night. And what kind of treats (if any) can they have at this age?

    Thank You all, especially to you pros who this is old news for but realize that for us newbies it's a whole new world and you still take the time for us....
