    What are these little sweet hearts. About 3 1/2 -4 weeks old There are 5 chicks. They are:
    One red/brown with brown legs
    Two black with yellow top of beak at forehead. They have a little white under their throat. Has black legs
    One back with yellow tip at end of beak is black all over. Has black legs. Is a much smaller chick than all the others also.
    One yellow/white face with yellow legs

    Any idea on the black chicks breed? We are hoping that at least one of the black one's is female. I WISH all 5 are female. The hen that is raising these (we got the hen and the 5 chicks together) is a Black Breasted Red Phoenix. It doesn't look like any of these chicks are from her, but she sure is a great "Momma"!

    They may very well be hers. Those chicks show a lot of Game blood, and it is possible the chicks are mixed breeds. Back in the day when I had a flock of gamefowl running around, it wasn't uncommon for my hens to hatch blacks, b.b reds, silvers, and golds in the same brood. It's early to tell what gender they are, but I'm thinking the Silver and B.B.R may be boys as females tend to have darker and wider head stripes. But, this doesn't prove true for all bloodlines.
