    I was 'blessed' with these darlings, no idea sex or breed. Any guesses? they are 11 days old today and are getting quite active in the brooder. They are cute.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Oh boy they are cute. I am not really great at identifying breed in chicks. It looks like you have at least 2 different breeds. It is possible that the one in front is and Old English Game chicken, but that is largely a guess. I know in the other thread, you said you were hoping that one might be a Buff Orpington. So here is a photo of one for you to compare. Notice it has flesh colored legs not yellow.

    I wanted Buff Orpingtons and an EE or two, these are anybody's guess. I asked the neighbor where he got them and he named of 3 or 4 people that he is hatching eggs for, no idea what breed. Oh well, I hope they are hens, at least 2 or 3 of them.

    I think your ones that are all yellow could be orpingtons, they look like mine did---I would say buff brahmas for your others, but their wings are coming in pretty dark and pretty quickly---and they are usually later bloomers---so maybe those are easter eggers?

    I am thinking they are both easter eggers but their leg color doesn't seem right for that, maybe just a mutt mix? very cute though!
