    I have no idea as to breed. I have seen two-week-old full sized chicks fly 2 feet vertical and 3 feet horizontal when the broody hen told them to fly up to her. jut watching them it was obvious they could have gone much further if they wanted to. Isn't it nice t have kids that mind so well?

    But to your question, those look old enough to fly fairly well if they really want to. It's not a question of can they, it's a question of how much they want to. Don't be surprised f one decides t wants to.

    Totally agree... I even have Brahmas that will take to the air for a few feet, if they think it will gain them an advantage over another chicken, when running for treats. Something to keep in mind is that as a species, chickens are ground birds and not likely to fly from place to place. Typically their preferred place is on the ground.

    As for the breed... do they both have blue legs? If so, you have a gold and a silver laced seabrights.

    I didn’t know if it was safe to leave the hardware cloth off the top of the box or not. I will keep it on now lol. This is my first time having baby chicks.

    I would. Otherwise you may come home to find them wandering the house, or wherever you're keeping them before putting them outside. LOL

    They both look like Sebrights.

    Yes one silver and one golden sebright. Once they have wings they start flying a bit so my guess is pretty soon.

    Look to be Sebrights, Silver and Gold. They should be able to fly now, short distances naturally.
