    I have 4 chicks that are 3 weeks old and wondering what kind they are :)

    I got them from a farm with many, many kinds, do I really have no idea.

    Any guesses?

    Not sure what breeds but it looks like you have cockerels.

    The two black ones with white spots on their head look like Barred Rocks. What’s the color of the skin and the number of toes on the small black one? It could be a Silkie. I have no clue what the white one is. They’re precious!

    Their combs are very big for 3 weeks old.

    When you get chickens from a farm with lots of chickens running around together, you get barnyard mixes. You can guess at the mix from their appearance but sometimes they fool you.

    I think you have two barred rock, or barred rock mixes. I'm not sure about the others. @debid is right, they're likely all mixed breeds. Could you post more pictures in a couple of weeks? Maybe we can tell more once they're a little older. It's easier to tell their sex when they're a little older too :)
