    They are too young. Do you know what breed they are? I was thinking New Hampshire Reds.

    i have no idea! the owner just said "regular looking chickens" so i don't think she new too much about how to care. I know how to care for them not too much about specific breeds. the rooster was beautiful speckled black and white chest and body with red head and green tail. ive just posted a picture of mumma.

    ive been doing some research but ill post some older photos very soon, they're growing very quick!

    mama and chicks look to be wheaton-ish in color. Hard to say sex of chicks, until they are 3-4 weeks old.
