    Hi there,

    I'm new to chickens! I recently acquired four chicks from a man who had a few different breeds of chickens, so these chicks are a mixed bunch. I had 5 originally but one was definitely a rooster, so had to give him back unfortunately as I live in an urban part of London!

    I have two seven week old chicks; one black- photo 1 and 2, one yellow, photo 3, and two 4 week old chicks; a dark one (photo 4) and a lighter coloured one, photo 5.

    I know that the larger black chicken has started to grow a comb, but I think it may due to its breed, because the little rooster I had at this age was much larger with a longer comb and wattle.

    Thanks for your help.

    The first and second ones, amazingly look like La Fleche chickens. I can't tell on the rest of them, I'd have to see a whole body shot.

    the big black might be a jersey giant if it has yellow feet bottoms or a astralrop if they are pinkish white the big brown with other colors looks like a speckled sussex
