    This is one of them that we hatched. It's a week and one day old. The feathers that are coming in have some fluff on them. We have no idea what the breed was that laid the eggs.

    Where did you get the eggs you hatched?

    it was a science fair project, the teachers at the high school got the eggs from a number of sources locally.

    Well the problem is that they could sort of be anything. Now there are breeds that they definitely aren't. Like you don't have crested Polish, Marans, Silkie, Cochins, any of the red breeds, or a number of others. Do you know if they are pure bred chicks or just barnyard mixes? Your chicks don't have very distinctive markings at this point so you are probably going to need to post photos again when they feather. I am sorry I can't be more helpful.
