    What are my chicks, they’re black and white 4 weeks old (I think) and I have no idea what they are.

    The pictures are really good, and I agree- looks interesting. Never seen one like that. I wonder if the feather patterns will stay like that?

    Likely you have some crosses. That is a very odd color pattern. The head shots made me think Splash, but looking at the body, I don't think so. Do you know what the black one is? I think if you give them more time and re-post someone might be able to help you come up with the right mix, but crosses are tough.

    I don't know what they are either but they are very nice. I would love to know what they are. From the pics they appear to be a bantam or some type.
