    All look to be about 2 weeks old. The first chick looks like a Silkie. The black chicks look like Marans. The gold chick looks more like a gold sexlink.

    I'll be in the barn!
    Most likely SHE is a Golden Sex Link pullet. This is the coloring of Golden Sex Links. Cokerels are typically solid white, while pullets are golden/reddish colored. This makes them easier to feather sex (one thing I LOVE about GSLs)
    Also, she's probably around 4 weeks or older. It'd be hard for me to guess age because I haven't had any chicks for a while :)
