So here are our new babies. We went with 2 golden sex links and 3 barred rocks. They are orginally from Ideal- the guys bought lots of extras to sell

I meant to ask when I posted this earlier- based on their feather 1) how old do you think they are (his add said 3-6wks I was hoping to get 3 week old, I am thinking they are more on the 6wk old side) and 2) Do they need the heat lamp in the house. He had them with a heat lamp, but they were outside.

They seem pretty feathered out, been a while since I've had chicks so I can't really guess on age.
if they are 5 weeks they should be in 70-75 range. If your house is in that range they should be fine, or just to be sure you could keep a lamp on them for a week or two, or just watch how they act with it, if they are spread out and seem to be hot they don't need it then.
