    The second one looks like a barred Rock, the first one doesnt ring any bells, a mix maybe? Where did you got them?

    On the second one, is that a single comb?
    To me, looks like it could be either one.
    As usual I'll go with Dominique.

    I probably shoulda gone with BR cause it just don't look right.
    There iv'e coverd both bases [​IMG]
    If you can show the comb above the beak better we would know.
    Or maybe the 2 previous answers came from people who see better then I.

    Ok, final guess is, Barred Rock.
    Not enough tail and too much contrast between the black and white to be a Dominique.

    There, I'm done.
    Now someone will prove me wrong.

    They are my friend's birds and I'm trying to help her.
    Her 4-H group order a mix bag of chick and each of them got to take home 2 to raise.

    That is a Barred Rock pullet chick, if that is a single comb I'm seeing in the pic-Doms have a rose comb.

    The cockerel is a red or gold sexlink(hybrid)
