    No specific breeds are jumping out, my thought is mixes of mixes.

    Probably a mix of mixes, but some really pretty color combinations. Would like to see new photos in 2 weeks to decide on gender. You got a bargain for $ 1. each

    Thanks! I was hoping for mainly hens! Hopefully I won't have to rehome to many roosters. But I am excited about the colors showing up!
