    My son's class hatched chicks so we had to get some... I think they are about 10-12 days old.

    I have no idea what breed these are. Any ideas? Bonus points if you can tell the gender.

    I'm putting two pictures of one of the chicks because I don't know which is better for identificaiton (top picture or side)

    Thank you!!!

    too young to tell gender i think.

    Much too young. Please post new photos at 6-8 weeks of age.

    The black chick could be a black Australorp.

    Way to young to be certain though.

    The first chick looks like an Easter Egger, there is a good chance of them being mixed breeds. The black one looks like it may have slightly feathered feet, does it?

    No feathers on the feet, they are dark though.
