    I was given 4, day old chicks, 3 weeks ago. While I'm confident that 2 of them are buff orpingtons....the other 2 have me stumped. My friend who gave them to me allows his free range birds to cross breed...so he's not sure what they are either. Can someone help me?

    They are the light colored and dark colored chicks pictured below.[​IMG]

    If your friend lets them cross breed they are most likely all mutts. If your friend can tell you what breeds he has we maybe able to narrow down what they are a mix of. Also I don't see any Buff Orpingtons :/.

    The only buff orpington pictured would be the small yellow one in the back? As far as other breeds he mentioned americana?? And not sure what else. He gave the eggs to our first grade classrooms to hatch in incubators, I was asked if I wanted any when they hatched. I took 4 [​IMG]
