What is the age of my light Sussex?

    I got the Barnevelders at 4wks, six weeks ago, and the light Sussex were from someone else who told me they were 4 wks as well. I wanted them all the same age so I could put them in together, but wasn't able to because the light Sussex were double the size and I have no idea how old they are. I also ended up with two roosters I think.[​IMG]

    They look to be about 16-18 weeks old to me.

    Thank you, they were in such a mess when I got them it was hard to tell. They were half bald with sores from feather plucking and covered in mud. I was so upset to see them in such bad conditions and being fed bread, that I just handed him the money, grabbed the chickens and left. Then when the barnies arrived just after, they were beautiful, fully feathered, very healthy, but half the size.
