    Hi. I got these chicks from a lady who had no idea what kind they were. They are about 3 months old. They could be mixed or purebred. Any help would be great.

    Are they bantams?? That would rule out a ton of breeds.

    no they are regular sized and none have green legs/feet. She thought they might be cookoo maran... but I don't think so from what I found online. She hatched them herself.

    The first three look like EEs; the last one looks like a RIR or Production Red.

    They are NOT cuckoo marans. Those have barring and look kinda like a BR.
