    I bought about 2weeks ago, about 10 mixed breed chickens. All are very odd looking, but look like mixes of familiar breeds to me. But these three chicks have colors & feather patterns that ive never seen. Maybe im just a little lost here, but im hoping someone can give me some insight to what breed of chicken they are or could be mixed with. Thanks in advance & hope to hear from some people soon !!!

    i only have pics of two of the chicks because two of the chicks are identical.

    Looks like a mille fleur pattern, but the top two photos are a bit different with more brown. The bottom definitely looks mille fleur.

    What color are the legs on the third one? It sorta looks like my production reds when they were that size, but I'm definitely not an expert on identifying chicks.

    all of their legs are a yellow color - one is a paler yellow & the other two are more orangey.

    The last one is a different breed from the others. That is a RIR, IMO. They start feathering in like that. The others could be brown leghorns, but so many chicks look similar at that age, it's hard to say for sure.

    The first couple pics look like the result of a red crossed with a light brown/BBR and the last chick looks solid red to me, well maybe black tailed red but still red.
