Hi there,
i have hatched 4 chicks (1st timer!) which were from mixed eggs.
The eggs were dark brown, light brown and x2 white.
i have 2 black chicks, one silver, and one mixed.
Im unsure of breed, im thinking marans? and can anyone sex them at 2 days old?
see attached photos of eggs and x3 chicks, one is sleeping lol.
many thanks 😊

Really tough to say what they are at that age without knowing the parent breeds. A Marans will usually have some feathering on the legs, so check for that on your chicks. 6 to 8 weeks is a good time to start sexing them.

According to that they're all mixed breeds. The chick from the dark brown egg is likely part marans.
