    A friend found these babies alone in the street with no momma in sight on a busy road loaded with speeding cars so of course she called the friend she knew who would take them...me. Any idea of what breed they may be or is it too early to tell? These babes are about 6-7 days old.[​IMG]

    Ok, thank you. They were all yellow with a touch of buff on their backs when I got them 5 days ago and suddenly a few days later they had these dark wings.

    Since it's quite likely they're mixed, it will be best to wait until they're feathered out to guess at breeds. chicklets change so much in the first month or so, the colors can be all over the place.
