    Here are my chicks. 5 are Black Astralops and the other 5 I am not sure. My buddy the got them for me said they were golden something, but I have no clue.

    I took the pics today and they are ~3 weeks.

    those are the strangest fish I have ever seen. You need better pics but I am thinking buff orpingtons but if your bud bought them as gold comets then that is probaly what they are.

    They are all supposed to be pullets.

    Not Buff orps. The legs are way to yellow. They must be golden comets.

    Maybe buff rocks. I have had some buff orps once that I swore were not because of the yellow legs but by the time they were adults the legs lightened to white.
