    i know its early to tell, but any ideas?

    this one has bare feet, redish tinge to its body with white and black wingtips.

    I'll be in the barn!
    Not sure breeds as of yet. Maybe wait till they are around 2 weeks old or older when they start to feather out more. They ae cute!

    Do you know if they are pure breeds or crosses? Where did you get them?

    I think it is a girl because it has 2 layers of feathers on her wing

    Wing sexing isn't accurate. Only with certain breeds at hatch day.

    They are pure breeds. Got them from a poultry farmer not far away to replace some eggs one of our broodies abandoned.

    The white one is now developing tail feathers along with the other I posted. The third still looks the same but now I can see that its wings are more red speckled with white, instead of black/white.

    The white one with the feathered feet is possibly a light brahma, I'm unsure about the other
