    Sorry, couldn't figure out how to rotate.

    My first chickens. Are the red ones New Hampshires?

    I believe the black ones are barred rocks.

    Any guesses as to how old they are? I'm thinking 4 weeks, but [​IMG]

    They are growing really quickly.

    [​IMG] Such cutie fuzzybutts!! They look exactly like my NHR and Barred rocks...so that would be my guess. Mine are 5 weeks old I would just guess based on mine that urs are 3 or 4 weeks old. Here r pics of mine when they were 4 weeks old.

    That's what I thought but they grow sooo fast. I kept trying to count the weeks I've had them, but it seems impossible that they've changed os much in so short a time. Yours look the same but older to me too. Thanks.

    I know what u mean! I had to go write everything down because I got chickies 3 different times from 3 different places. I had to go back and look at when these chickies were born to be sure. Enjoy them! I have found the both breeds r very friendly! My BR, Sweat Pea, is the friendliest of all 29 of my peeps. [​IMG]

    Thanks all!!!

    Earnhardtlvr, I think your BRs have better markings than mine. Sooooo cute!

    These are my first; I'm hoping to add some green/blue egg layers later this spring.
