Chicks with multicolored wings

Thread Starter 
Good morning BYC!

Any ideas what breed these week old chicks might be? (I think they are the same breed so I put them in one thread.)

I got them as eggs after they were passed through a few people's hands. They were from a farm that supplies eggs to a hatchery. I haven't been able to track down which farm but I think it's in Kentucky. Supposedly these were surplus so the eggs were unmarked. I guessed that the eggs were on the track to be food.

I forgot to mention that the eggs were light brown.

Your chicks are cute, Jack! Crosses would explain why I couldn't find a good picture match. I'm really curious to know what they'll look like in a few weeks. There will be more pics!

I agree with JacksFarmNGardn they are most likely mixes.

I haven't been able to find anywhere online any pics of others orp brahma mixes. I think i found where the roo was a brahma, but the roo for mine was the orp. It'd make a difference in how the chick looks. Does yours have feathered feet? That is a trait from the brahma that should let you know with better certainty that your chick is mixed with that.

No feathered feet on either one.

The one weird thing I noticed is that the chick pictured on the left is larger than all the other chicks that he/she was hatched with. Comparatively slow feather growth though.
