Day old chicks! Need help figuring out breeds!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey y'all! I bought this broody hen on Craigslist a few weeks ago with some hatching eggs and yesterday 7 babies hatched. The broody hen is a orphington, but she's not the biological mom to any of the chicks. I need help figuring out the chicks breeds. These are the breeds she says she has in her flock; easter eggers, spec sussex, polish, silky, barred rock, orpington, Rhode Island Red, and gold laced wyndottes. Most of them should be crosses of these.

Here's a picture of the eggs.

And these are the chicks.




This one was the first to hatch and for sure came out of one of darker brown eggs.

First chicks could be a buff Orpington
Last pic a Wyandotte. I am just really guessing here. I keep going back and forth 😜 But they sure are cute!!!!

I have a wonderful loving family, so that means my chickens get alot of love from us-well from me & my son mostly, but I like to pretend my husband loves it too! 1 collie dog,3 cats, 4 Leghorns, 1 OEGB rooster, 7-Gold Comets,2 Dekalb Amberlinks, 2 Buff Brahma's, 1 Light Brahma's, 4 Naked Necks, 2 Col. Rock Cross, 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte hens, 2 Silikes, and more breeds on the way! .

The second to last one a Polish or Silkie mix. I can't wait to see what they start to turn into. wink.png

The fourth one is most likely a Speckled Sussex. The two black ones with white on their head and wings are probably Barred Rock mixes. The first one could be Buff Orpington. They're all adorable. smile.png
