    I bought 6 chicks from Tractor Supply on Sunday April 13th which is when the photos were taken as well. I was told 3 of them were 3 weeks and 3 were 2 weeks and that they were the featured breed (brahma) I now know they are probably not that old and absolutely not brahma. I am thinking they are White Leghorn and 3 of them might have been days old and 3 of them being maybe a week old. I would greatly appreciate any information.

    I am having difficulties posting pictures will try again in a bit.

    If they are 4 months old now, you said pics in Dec, then they could probably be identified easier with up to date pictures.

    I think you're certainly right about the ages of the chickens. The older bigger ones look to be about the same in feathering as my chicks and they're barely a week old, I would put them at about 2 weeks old at the oldest. And right again, definately not brahmas (no feathers on legs/feet). They definately look to be some kind of white bird, and white leghorn is as good a guess as any (sorry I'm not much help with breeds)

    I know that TSC was selling some chicks that are a new breed called Tetra Tints..there is a thread on here about them. I have 3 that look just like yours.and they look alot like the tetra tint chicks posted on that thread..I think that they be white rocks cross or somehing. They feather out all white! They are just the cutest little chicks!

    Ruthless, I am sorry on the date I meant April 13th..I am not sure why December was on my mind. I just bought them and have been researching the breed they told me they were and figured out really quick they were wrong. I am not trying to guess age, gender, and breed! We are all enjoying them either way, but curiosity always gets the best of me and I like to be well informed.
