    My cousin brought me these, her cute baby chicks turned into chickens and she had no place for them lol Luckily we have a huge coop and only 7 right now, so these are being slowly introduced to my flock. I'm thinking they are between 12-16 weeks, but not positive, I'm Hoping ones a rooster, we have none and our girls free range so I'm hoping he'll take the lead at some point. My girls are almost 20 weeks.

    They both look like hens to me,but I'm not really sure. #1 is most likely an Easter Egger,and #2 is definitely a Silver Laced Wyanotte mix. Either that,or she isn't the best quality.
