I inherited these two chickens from a neighbor kid. He hatched them for a science project. He had no idea what breed they were and said they are about a week old.

I was thinking maybe Cornish X?



These are 1 week old and nearly the size of my 4 week old barred rocks.

I am trying for better pics right now. They are a bit wilder than the chicks I raise.

All three of these images are of the chicken on the right.

The chick on the left is kind of lazy so I was able to get better images.

i am basing my opinion on the baring gene and colouration

the fact they have a line going doen the head and back suggests they have a baring gene

with that sid its possible to produce sex links dependant on breed

the males are a yellowish silver down with a light but darker then body down stripe

and the girls are a reddish down with a heavey brown stripe

but again its all a guess at the moment

i could completely be wrong

and again im saying welsumer on the reddish one and welsummers are not sexlink so its all guess work right now

sorry to confuse you
