    I think the brownish colour one may be a roo and the other 2 pullets

    Can't tell the age, but Pekin is interchangeable with Cochin. In the UK they are called Pekin and in the US they are called Cochin. I believe.

    They are nice though

    Thanks Rancher [​IMG]

    We're guessing they are around 7 weeks (from looking at others pic at around the same age) but it wouldn't be the first time we were wrong lol [​IMG]

    The pictures might not be the best quality, but those chicks sure are! I would be very proud to be the mama to those cuties. I hope you post more pics as they mature.
