    Have had these chicks for about 8 weeks or so. They are our first chickens along with two Rhode Island Reds. My kids picked these up at a farmers market, and they don't remember what breed they were.

    They look kind of dark to be barred rocks. Are they purebred or mixed?

    I think I have the same two chicks.

    And I believe you have a Welsummer.

    Looks like either a Welsummer or brown Leghorn on the first and a silver laced Wyandotte on the second.

    And she is a Speckled Sussex! I think she is beautiful and gets prettier the bigger she gets!
