    Hello! I call these my rescue chicks (which my husband makes fun of me for) because they were a classroom project that did not have a home. The teacher had no idea what breed they are and I am new to chickens. We got two black and one white. They are now 3.5 weeks and the black ones are starting to get puffy chests. Any guesses?!

    Striped one looks like barred rock. Is the white 1 skittish? It looks like a possible White Leghorn. Can't see the 3rd to well.

    Were they hatching eggs? The tail is held quite high on the white 1. Possible cockerel?

    Does she know where she got the eggs for hatching? The black one if it's getting barring that narrows it down assuming they're pure breed & the white one is tough because there are a number of white breeds and the other characteristics take more time, the other looks like it's sort of gray and white?
