These 2 chicks were given to us. Please and thanks.
The black and white chick looks like either a Plymouth barred rock, a Dominique, or a Cuckoo Marans. If by the time she starts laying and you see a dark chocolate egg, you have a Cuckoo Marans. The other 2 breeds will also lay brown eggs but they range in color from light to medium brown, and the barred rock's eggs may have a pink tinge to them.

I don't know what the other chick is.

Thank you. I was hoping she was a barred rock. Someone said the other maybe an Easter egger. I'm not sure.

1) It doesn't look like a marans to me. Kinda looks like it has a rose comb by the photos. If it has a rose comb, it's probably a Dominique. If it has a single comb, I'd say it's a barred rock.

2) I don't know. If I had to guess, I'd say it was an EE.

Dominique and an Easter Egger. BR's would already have their single comb by this age, Doms have the flat comb.

Yes, she looks like a barred rock to me. The other chick looks like an easter egger-- the green feet give her away
