    I think they are around 3-4 weeks old now. I'm not real sure on the age as I have no idea when they hatched. My best guess is 3 weeks since we have had them for 3 but they might be more like 4 weeks.

    I'm also hoping maybe someone can help me out on what breed/s they are and if they are roo's or pullets.

    Chick #1 (I'm think Roo on this one, he/she already has their wattles)

    Chick #2 (I'm thinking Roo on this one too)

    Chick#3 (this one we call "Five" I'm think maybe pullet?)

    Five (again)

    I am not sure [​IMG] , it's kind of early to tell but I don't see any that shout cockerels to me except the second one, is it a barred rock?

    Can't help with the sexes but the first one looks just like my buff orpington. The second one doesn't look anything like my barred rocks. Not sure of the others, hope someone else can be more help!

    Ok, thanks for the help. I really do appreciate it. I thought #2 might be a barred rock to but now I'm not sure. Only reason I thought #1 or #2 might be a roo because they already getting wattles but the others are not.

    I have no idea how to tell what breed they are. So thanks so much. [​IMG]

    Maybe I need wait little longer to know for sure or the rest might just be mixed breeds.

    Quote:What is a BA? Sorry I don't know much about chicken breeds? lol

    I have like 10 chicks all together but the others didn't want cooperate for pictures. lol

    I should add 10 of the 4 week old chicks but also have 5 8 week old chicks which I believe are all red sex links. I need post pictures of them also.

    Oh, ok. See there is so many breeds out there. I have no idea how tell them apart. We got them from a feed store. My husband was told they are "growers" whatever that is suppose to mean?

    Thanks a lot for your help!! I'm pretty sure I have two of the BA's then. They pretty much look the same.[​IMG] Are they good egg layers?
