    I have 4 lovely chickens (all female pullets) and I want to know if there really 12 and a half weeks old.
    I`ve heard that some chicken breeds can be different then from what expected.
    Here are the photos.

    The farm that I bought this from said they were 9 weeks old,a couple of weeks have passed and there 12 and a half weeks old but is it true?
    (Sorry if the pictures are not clear)
    Thanks

    Age estimate also looks to be correct.

    I agree with the above. The "black Rock" is a black sex link and the "Rhode Island Red" is a red sex link.
