    Hi! Im Ivory! I'm a first time owner of chicks. We rescued two chicks from the dump when someone threw them,they were about a week old or two that time. Now they've been with us for almost a month, happy and healthy. I've been reading forums in this site on how to take care of chicks, I hope I could learn more.

    Thank you for welcoming me! Can anyone help me in determining the breed of my chicks? I have attached some photos. The camera doesn't give them much justice.

    They will be growing fast and need a bigger pen. Can't make out any detail on the black. The other seems to have long legs - maybe some game bird influence.
