These 2 were found in a dumpster, any guesses?

    Looks like red sex links to me, possibly roosters with that coloration pattern.

    They look like Red Sex-links to me. If that is the case, then the first chick is probably a cockerel, and the second chick is likely a pullet.

    The white one could also be a White Plymouth Rock or White Leghorn.

    Thank you all for the replies! The white/yellow one is about 2/3 the size of the one with brown feathers coming in. I was thinking production red as well, I'll follow up as they get older so you know what they turn out to be.

    Someone else found them, I just ended up with them haha! I would imagine so, one of them sounds like a song bird instead of a chick. I've never heard these noises before!
