    I will update as the weeks go by to guess their gender.

    Yes, I am aware that there are many possibilities based on my descriptions, I just want to narrow down my options on breeds. Then, once pictures get up, narrow it down further, and hopefully be able to conclude only a few options once the week is over. Hopefully in 3 weeks, a breed can be found.

    For the second chick you said it could be a buff leghorn, but you said from a tan egg and leghorns lay white eggs, so that can probably be scratched from the list.

    Yeah... I was thinking that too. Anyhows, it dried out to a reddish brown color with a fluffy golden underbelly. Not sure what it is.
