    I received a thank you batch of 6 chicks for helping a friend deliver eggs. Not sure what they are and didn't know if any one could help me out.

    They have black legs, beaks, mouths, combs, and grey or black down.

    There are photos of when I received them and now at 3 weeks.

    Could be just about anything. Did your friend hatch them, or did they come from a hatchery? If I were to guess, I'd guess black sex link.

    I'm guessing they're a mix.
