    One pic showed up.
    Barred Plymouth Rock, I'm pretty sure.
    The ones with more white than black are males.
    How old is this chick?

    It has feathered shanks so I would suggest it's more likely to be a cuckoo marans.

    I agree with rebrascora; it looks like a cuckoo maran :)

    It's one of those stories,,,, I purchased several Hen's from a guy. In the purchase He mentioned that he also would sale this beautiful Black Orpington. But she was sitting. And come to find out. A nabor had brought some eggs over for her to hatch.
    Soooo,,, we ended up with the hole barn yard mix. The nabor doesn't remember what egg's were brought over. LOL
    No matter what they are. We Luv them.

    So, sounds like barnyard mixes. There's something barred, likely a barred Rock, and something feather legged. Beyond that, who knows? But they're adorable, and getting to watch a momma hen raise chicks is a wonderful experience!

    Since they're barred, you could possibly get a hint on gender. If the neighbor had only barred hens, and no barred roosters, these chicks are male as the barring is sex linked. If the rooster was barred, all bets are off as to telling gender until around 6 weeks.
