Help me with these feed store chicks

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello! So instead of organizing the chicks, my local RK store has pretty much made every bin an"assorted breeds" bin. So can anyone help me out with what kind all these may be? Not great pictures but if I can get an idea of what I'm looking at that would be great. Thanks!!

The little red ones I think will be production reds or RIR.

The black and yellow ones could be barred rocks, black australorps, or black jersey giants, or a mix of the above.

The chipmunky chicks could be any number of things, but they are most probably EE, especially if they have green legs.

 

Or at least that's my best guess anyhow!!

Reddish chicks will be some type of Red birds. Rhode Island, production, cherry eggers, sex links, along those lines.

 

Black with a white spot on the head means barred Rock, or possibly cuckoo Marans. Yellow skin and straight comb is Rock. White/pink skin and straight comb is Marans. Yellow skin and rose comb is Dominique, which are kind of rare at a feed store, around here anyway. Straight comb and yellow skin and feathered legs would be a barred Cochin, also pretty rare around here unless it's in the bantam bin. 

 

Black with white underbelly and no spot on the head is probably an Australorp. Black with a solid head and underbelly is probably a black sex link pullet. 

 

Chipmunks can be a lot of different breeds. It's the base color for partridge, black breasted red, pretty much all the brown/gold colors. If they have greenish/dark legs, pea combs (just a wider spot vs the little sawtooth of a straight comb) and a beard, they're Easter eggers.
