What breed did I get at Atwoods

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Got to love fall chick days at Atwoods. Just stopped in to pickup some adult chicken feed and looked in the bins. To my surprise I saw in the straight run bins 7 Egyptian fayoumis. I grabbed them and then 5 more that I'm not sure what breed on. 3 of some grayish chicks with brown stripes and 2 sparrow looking. Here are some pics:

The others could also be leghorns, phoenix, or several others in addition to the ones suggested by junebuggena. You'll most likely have to wait until they are 1-2 months old to determine breed on those.

Splash Laced Red Wyandottes and any of several possibilities. Cute chicks!

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

I believe they are too light colored for welsummers, and they do not have and muffs or beards for Easter Eggers ( I hatch a few of these out naturally every year). I'm thinking silver duckwing Phoenix.

As for the other ones I was thinking some kind of wyndotte. Had thought Columbian at first.

I've got some clean faced Easter Eggers. The fluffy cheeks are not guaranteed.
