    Ive had both those breeds and they look nothing like that. Im leaning toward Millie fluer duccles but not 100% posative

    Checking the chick pictures on feathersite those were the closest matches I could find. The look a little big to be bantams. Do you have a picture of them with something that might give an indication to their size? I've had Belgain Quail d' Anvers and they started life much smaller than those chicks unless those aren't a few days old. And by then bantams are usually starting to feather.

    I looked on feathersite and the chicks looked pretty dark there too. I have d'uccles and I just didnt think they were that dark but who knows

    Check their combs. Pea would rule out cochins, faverolles, etc and suggest they are probably brahmas. (I'm wondering dark brahmas? but cannot see combs..)

    Could it be they are mutts or basically pure breds of different colors crossed?

    I agree bantam... Mille Fleurs...ummm, they do seem a little dark... but mine was a hatchery bird, I think private breeders probably have better stock... and they DO look like some Mille Fleur d'Uccle chicks I've seen.
