    Hi I'm new to chickens. My daughter recently bought home 2 chicks from school, her class hatch a few eggs and she was able to bring 2 home. I'm not to sure where they got the eggs from but was told a parent or local residents that has chickens. They were hatched around Mother's Day so that puts them at about 4-5 weeks. Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    The brown one looks like a Easter Egger are its feet greenish?
    The grey one Barred rock, Dominique or cuckoo maran

    I think they are both roosters!

    I guess the brown one maybe an Easter Egger, but the grey one is definitely not a Barred Rock, Dominique, or Cuckoo Maran, the best guess is they are mixes.
