    I am curious if anyone can help me distinguish what breed and gender these chicks are. I am not sure how old they are either. I have BSL chicks but these two look totally different then the BSL

    Maybe black Minorca just a guess though don't take it for gospel I'm not great at knowing all the traits of different breeds

    Lots of chicks start out like this so you'll have to wait a while to identify breed. I'd say they around 10-12 days or so. And with as much comb as they have at this age they are likely cockerels.

    To young to say for sure but there is a chance of them being Australorps or Marans.
