    Okay. so this random guy gave me these two chicks. but i dont know what breeds they are. its because i own a farm and apparently i can care for them. but i really dont know what kind they are and ive never raise chickens before. so here are some pics... please help me. and i dont know how to care for them. right now i got them in an old birds cage with one of the heat lamps . along with newspaper, birdfeed, a nest, and some other little things.

    also. welcome to BYC, and please take out the newspaper. bad for chicks, it gets really slippery and they can fall and break their legs. Use pine shavings. hay. or something like that (NO CEDAR SHAVINGS, gives off a toxic fume that can make chickens sick (and i think die).

    First one is a barred rock for sure...you can see barring already. Second one I think is also a barred rock...third one, not sure but I'm sure someone will know...see lots of those chicks around but can't remember what they were. I was thinking Dark Brahma but not sure, does it have feathers feet? If not then that's not what it is.
