    These are from about a week ago? So I'm thinking they are 3-4 weeks old? I got them from someone after they took Easter pictures with them lol. What are they? [​IMG]

    It's best to take photos of the birds in a natural, standing position....holding them makes getting a picture easier, but blocks the view of key points used in identifying potential breed at this point. It can help to make a three sided "booth" (can be a simple cardboard box with one side cut out) so that the chick holds still and you are able to snap some photos. Taking new photos will also allow you to get updated shots that show the birds as they are now - the amount of feathering to down shown in these pictures indicate they were at most two weeks of age and a lot of development takes place each week so seeing them as they are now will be very helpful.
    The bottom bird is something barred or cuckoo as indicated by the dot that seems to be showing on the top of the head and what bit of the wing can be seen.

    You can also get a 3 sided display board in the art supplies section of Walmart, sometimes even Dollar Tree has them. For young chicks you don't need a real tall one.
