    Hi first I'm new to chickens. Recently my daughter hatched a few eggs at school and was able to bring 2 chicks home. I believe the eggs were give to school from a parent or a local resident. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

    I think they maybe cream legbars or mixes, the one with the bigger comb looks like a cockerel and the darker brown one a pullet.

    Would you know their ages? Are they bantams or full sized chicks?
    The lighter colored one looks to be possible Sebright Cockerel, I maybe wrong. The darker one if from the same clutch, maybe a mix pullet, and I again maybe wrong. It's a guessing game until they're about 6 - 8 wks.

    Definitely not a Sebright they have rosecombs not single combs and are laced not barred, they look like this:

    Chicken Girl1 is correct, they could be a mix of some kind is my only guess. There are so many breeds that I'm still learning, thanks for bringing up the comb, those still confuse me.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Just asked my daughter if she could remember the color of the eggs and she said there was green, blue, and some with dots on them. Just thought maybe that would help. I was thinking possibly cream legbars?

    Probably Cream Legbars (or Cream Legbar mixes), they are the right coloring.
