    A guy brought his cousin over and they wanted me to hatch 6 large brown eggs and I got 3 babies and they wont come get them so I will raise them but I have no idea what breed they are. Do you? Any help would be nice. I'm pretty sure the black one is a roo. They are three weeks old and doing great.

    The first guy could be a Jersey Giant. Are the bottoms of his feet yellow? If they're not, and they are pink, then he probably is a Black Australorp. But from the little I can see of his feet in the first picture they look yellow.

    The last 2 pictures are of an Easter Egger. Cute little muff going on around the face. Probably a pullet based on coloring.

    Are the top 2 pictures of the same bird?

    Note that the bird came from a BROWN egg. There are many breeds with muffs & beard.

    Dose the black chick have feathers on its leggs, it looks like it might in the first picture.

    Quote:It also has a pea comb and is a common EE color, EEs can lay brown eggs, and/or its dad could have been an Ameraucana/EE. That's why I said EE, if the egg was very dark, it might be an "Olive egger".
    The black chick almost looks like it has a pea comb in the second picture?? It might just be me

    OP, please post an update when they are older and she lays.
