    The guy that I got these from said they were all the same age and buff orps except the barred rocks ( that have not grown) I kinda have doubts on what they are.[​IMG][​IMG]

    They look like the red broilers I have in my brooder right now. Now at 3wks, they are at least twice the size of my layers. Here are some picture of them at about 2.5 weeks with an RIR and a delaware (they are the lighter, buff chicks), and behind an EE, see how much bigger it is compared to the EE?:

    It looks like the BRs are fine and the big ones are really broilers... sorry...
