    We inherited these from a 4H family. We don't know the breed but they are very healthy.

    Can anybody help?

    It's hard to see, but they do have some feathers on their feet. The age here is approx 1 wk.

    Thanks. As you can see, I'm new here and new to chicken raising. We have 2 Leghorn chicks. Our goal is to end up w/ 2 egg-laying hens for the home.

    I dont know either...I'd just call em cute too! Maybe when they get a few more wing feathers it'll be easier to tell. I still have 2 month old banties that I cant figure out.

    They look an awful lot like my light brahma chicks did at one week, except for the tips of their wings being slightly different. [​IMG]

    Light Brahmas is my guess...

    I went and took a couple more pics to make into this collage of the wings. I think you guys are probably right. They do seem to match what I'm googling on Light Brahamas.

    I also started handfeeding them some mealworms for treats. I'm learning so much from you all.
