    I received these chicks from my sons elementary school when the first grade hatched some eggs. The teacher was unable to tell me what breed they are, and I'm new to owning chickens do any help would be appreciated.

    More than likely they are mixes. Being white I would guess mixed with leghorn.

    Good, clear photos that show each bird fully so we can see things such as comb bud type, leg color, etc will be needed to begin to identify breed/breeds (as noted above, it's very likely they are mixes).

    I will take better pictures tomorrow hopefully. I took them in hoping for possible egg layers so hopefully the hens are just that.

    I'm thinking mixes, probably Leghorn or Plymouth Rock but the one with the greed legs could be an Easter Egger.

    Thanks for your help!! They are growing quickly and playing in an old dog crate next to my flock of laying hens.
