    We just picked up 5 chicks from the farm yesterday. I have no clue what breeds or sexes or even how old they may be. Any ideas?

    The first might be Welsummer.

    The first looks like a production Red, but the rest look like mixes. As far as age, I would put them at 3-4 weeks old.

    The first is definitely not a welsummer. I'd guess production red (hatchery RI red) for that one. Possibly white leghorn for the second one. The next two are probably at least part cochin. And the last one, I'm not sure. Probably a mix, judging by the leg color and feather color.
