    I BOUGHT THESE CHICKS AT 2 WEEKS OF AGE FROM A FRIEND WHO DOESN'T KNOW WHAT BREED THEY ARE EITHER. THEY ARE NOW 5 WEEKS OLD AND I STILL CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT. 1 OR 2 OF THEM IS BLACK, SOME ARE BROWNISH, BUT THE MAJORITY OF THEM ARE BLUE AS CAN BE AND THEY ALL HAVE DARK LEGS.

    Do you know where they came from? Like a hatchery or breeder? I see some rose combs, maybe some wyandottes?
    I see 4 roos, 2 looking at each other in first pic, and the chicks in the last two pictures.

    i bought them off a friend, my friend bought them as hatching eggs, and my friend had bought the hatching eggs (thinking they were Rhode island reds) from a friend whom bought the eggs at an auction.
    they hatched outta brown eggs and the chicks came out all blue, there's a couple blue and brown, and a couple that are solid black.
    my neighbor gave me a website to look at www.feathersite.com
    and i think they look like a breed of chicken on there that is called a (Delaware Blues)
    tell me what you think?
    oh and i don't think there wynadottes cause I've been raising gold and silver wynadottes the past couple years.

    thanks
