I think these are chickens... but that's all I know.

    Well, I finally got me some chicks, now I just have to figure out what they are. I picked them up at a local livestock auction. The two lots that I won were labeled "Box of chicks" and "Cage of chicks." Any guess as to breed, sex, and age would be most welcome.

    Thanks

    that last brownish one looks an awful lot like my dark cornish chicks did... The long tail, the feather marking and the bright yellow legs.

    That first picture has some sort of barred chick for sure. Of course they may all be 'barnyard specials' - in other words mixed breeds

    Oh and WELCOME!

    The last two could also be Welsummers. They look a lot like my Welsummers at that age.

    Thanks for the input all.

    I'm not overly concerned with the breeds, just as long as they don't peck my eyes out and they shoot out an occasional egg or two.

    The barred one looks to me like a dominique because from what I can see it looks to have a rose comb.
