    IMG_3419.JPG IMG_3421.JPG IMG_3423.JPG IMG_3425.JPG IMG_3427.JPG Hey everyone! I'm new to owning chickens and we just got twelve 1 month old "barnyard mix" chicks and I'm having a hard time identifying what breed they are.
    Here's two of my favorites:) can y'all help me identify what breed they are? And if you are able to tell the gender that would be awesome, but I don't know if that's even possible.

    The one with the feathery feet is peaches, and the other is nutmeg

    Peaches might be a cochin.

    Aren't Cochins super nice?
    That would explain why she's such a sweetheart!

    Where did you get them? When you say 'barnyard mix' that usually means they are not pure bred and just that 'mixes'.
