    Hello,
    I have two new chicks from my daughters kindergarten class. Yellow one was hatched from a white egg but don't know about the other one. The eggs given to the school were a mix of Fancy Egglayers. Those are the only clues I have.

    Any ideas would be helpful.

    The second is definitely a brown leghorn.

    Here new photos of the little yellow chick. Looks like she is going to get a pea or rose comb if that is helpful. Was thinking maybe a Jubilee Orpington?

    @Sedy75 I think they are probably both mixes. Orpingtons don't lay white eggs ( you said it came from a white egg) and they don't have pea combs.
