These kids came to the humane society with no known history. Any idea what they are?
1's a dominigue........
Chicken... Yup.... definitely chicken.
Sorry.... I think it is a bit young to know breed on the second one since chipmunk ones can be any of several breeds.
The first one could be a dominique or a barred rock IMO.
It sure looks like one, doesn't it! But aren't Dominiques kind of rare? We usually don't see fancy babies in the shelter. They are adorable though, eating like nobody's business. they fight over mealies. Ruthless little ones.
I don't think #1 is a Dominique as I can see distinct "teeth" in a row (edited) in the photo profile which indicate a single comb to come.
Dominques have a rose comb which will begin on chicks as a small inverted horseshoe with smooth outside ridges and indented middle...no teeth.
I think #1 is likely a Barred Rock or BR mix.
The other are chipmunks which could be a lot of things from game to bantams to a number of large fowl...and I can't really see the combs....small, tiny little bumps, a bit wider than the single comb may be pea comb...if they have green legs, may be Easter Eggers....a row of small teeth and beige legs could be Speckled Sussex....yellow legs could be Brown Leghorn (white ear lobe) or Welsummer (red earlobe)...But most likely those are a mixes and probably a mix of mix.

Thank you everyone for input. I'm very much a beginner, breed recognition wise, so all of this helps. Looking up the breeds mentioned as we speak. Thanks again!
