Trying to get an idea of the age of my chicks! (link to pics now included)

Thanks in advance to anyone that may respond! However DH and I disagree on when we bought them. One says end of March the other says April. However, we got them at TS there was no mention of how old they were just straight run, pullets, and/or breed name. I assumed they were a day old or so. When my GF saw them the next day he said "Sissy those chicks are at least 2 weeks old!". I can't post pics however later I can post to photobucket. Does anyone have any pics I could compare to my own? I have White Leghorn, Golden Comet, and Barred Rocks. I think they are ~ 10 weeks old!

I don't know if this will help any, but the cheat sheet that I have says:

week 1 = wing feathers
week 2 = tail feathers
week 3 = back feathers
week 4 = breast feathers
week 5 = head feathers
It would be very hard to guess the difference between a couple week difference for me they look pretty similar between 8-11 weeks to me .. Leghorns do get pretty big pretty fast, The Barred rocks would have their cool new patterns started by ten weeks ..
