    I bought these two chicks at auction just to keep my single hatchling company but I have no idea what breed they are. Any guesses? I got them a week ago and they seemed about a week or two old then. IMG_20170525_164146.jpg IMG_20170525_164029.jpg

    Could you get pictures in natural lighting? I can't tell what their true coloring is. Did the person give you any info? Right now it would be hard to narrow it done since there are multiple different breeds let alone mixes it could be.

    I'll get some better photos in the morning. The auction just had them listed as assorted chicks.
