    I know it'll just be gusses since they're barnyard mix but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.
    Here are three:) some have feathered feet

    The second chick and the third chick look like Barred Rock mixes, the first chick and the fourth chick look like Light Brahmas, the last chick I'm unsure of. It's probably a mix, though.

    Thank you! Can't wait to see what they look like full grown! I love the look of light Brahmas

    Where did you get them? 'Barnyard mix' usually means they are not pure bred and are just that 'mixes'. :)
