    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Are you in the UK? The Burford Brown is a cross, bred to lay dark brown eggs, those chicks don't look like the pictures of them though, wonder if you have one of the Legbar crosses instead? Old BYC thread on them with a link to the breeder ads https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/846092/burford-brown/0_20

    Hi :welcome Ben

    Glad you could join the flock! Sorry but I'm not sure what breed they are. If you could get pics of your birds so the whole body is showing you can post in the what breed gender section. Here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this I'm sure more greeters will be along soon who can help you.

    Good luck with your birds and hope you enjoy BYC, I am sure you will everyone here to help and very friendly :frow

    They could be mixed breeds. But I also am not sure.
