    They along with 14 others i have are part of an assortment from when the hatchery cleans out the chicks not sold.

    First chick may be a Barred Rock or black sex-link male. Second chick may be a Partridge Rock or Welsummer.

    ----
    Edit: didn't notice at first that the first chick had white legs. It isn't a Barred Rock; probably a Marans.

    First chick has pink legs, not a Barred Rock. Probably a Cuckoo Marans, definitely a cockerel. Second one could be Welsummer, Partridge Rock, or Barnevelder.

    What hatchery?

    The first bird is not a Rock at all. They have yellow skin, this bird has white. Looks like a cuckoo Marans or a mix thereof, and a cockerel for sure.

    Second bird could be a couple different breeds, several look similar at this age. Posting again when fully feathered will let us know better.
