    I ordered chicks from cackle - just the whatever you had leftover brown egg layers - so it's a mix of a few different breeds. I'm new to this whole chicken thing, so maybe you guys could help me figure out these two breeds? This is my first time doing the photo thing on here, so I hope it works! Oh, and they are 3 1/2 weeks old in the photos.

    Maybe I am seeing it wrong but the supposed Barred Rock has a Rose comb. That would make it a Dominique.

    That other is a Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    Well, Thanks so much for straightening it out! It's nice to know what they are - I love their colors that are coming in. We have 2 others that I'm unsure about. I will take a photo of them later on and ask all of you knowledgeable people again!

    They look very much like my silver-laced Wyandottes when I first got them, I'd guess at least 1 of them is.

    I am guessing Domniques and a SLW. They are beautiful either way.
