    Chicks are almost 3 weeks old. I know they came from standard size brown eggs. The black one has feathers on its legs.[​IMG]

    #1 maybe a Cochin (or Cochin mix). Where did you get the eggs? Also could you get a better picture of the 2nd one?

    My dad hatched them out in his classroom. The eggs came from the local 4-H chapter.

    No breed is standing out to me and there is a very high chance of it being a mixed breed as well. I would post again when they are fully feathered.

    The brown one looks like a Welsummer or a Partridge Rock. The black one. May be a Cochin or a Langshan.

    I have some updated pics at almost 6 weeks old. I'm pretty certain that the black and dark brown one are cockerls. I'm not sure on the buff/brown one though. I'm looking for suggestions on breed for all 3.

    I think that the black one could be a Cochin australorp mix, hence the color and size, I am not sure about the other ones

    How old are they, the brown one looks like a boy but if you could send some pictures of their heads i could tell (I know it is hard, do the best you can:D!)

    I think the brown and white one is a Gold Sexlink, the black one looks like a Langshan, and I don't know for the brown one.
