    They were labeled straight run. Also not sure what age/sex they are.

    This one is black, not brown how it looks in the first picture. It is really calm and docile, and lets me hold it without fuss.

    This one is quite a bit bigger than the first, assumingly due to age difference. It is really skittish and flighty.

    It would be really great if someone knew what kinds these two might be! :]

    The brown one sorta looks like my speckled sussex when she was that age, not sure about the black one though. They're beautiful chicks!

    Brown one has poofy cheeks--so probably Easter Egger.

    The black one is either a Barred Rock (if yellow legs) or Cuckoo Marans (if pink legs).

    The brown one is an Easter Egger, and the black one is probably a Barred Rock.
