    Hey everyone! My name is Sara and I'm new here! Recently I was given some chicks and they are 4 weeks old today. I am not sure what the breeds are of these chickens (really because i know nothing about chickens, but learning A LOT by raising them!) I think i know what the two black and white chickens are (named Checkers and Greybeard), not sure about the red/brown one (named Goldie) and have NO CLUE about the fancy-feathered-foot one (named, of course, Fancy). They are all sweet, sweet birds. Goldie is the biggest ham EVER. She loves when I visit the brooder, always hopping up on the sides and coming to my lap. She loved to be help and petted. I never knew chickens could be so tame. Fancy is the smallest of the four and therefore she's pretty flighty. She is getting calmer though. The black and white ones could careless. They dont mind to be held, but they let you know when they are done being held! I was hoping someone could help identify the breeds of these chickens for me, just curious!

    Hello [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC!!

    The little feather footed chick kinda looks like a Wheaten Marans Cockerel, or maybe a marans mix of some sort.
