What Kind of Chicks Do I Have?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I know that the cream colored chicks are Ameraucanas, but I don't know what the black ones are.  They have feathers on their legs and feet, if that helps?  Also, what are the brown ones -- two of the brown ones are the same shade, and one is a darker brown?  Overall, there are three cream (Ameraucana), three brown ones (??), and the rest are the black ones.  I ordered the Ameraucanas, and then an "egg production pack", so I really have no idea.  Thanks so much for your help!!

The creams and browns are probably Easter Eggers (if you got them from a hatchery/feedstore) Though some of them might be red Sex Link or a production red. The barred ones (black) are probably Cuckoo Marans if they have feathered feet, what kind of combs do the black ones have?

You have 5 Easter Eggers, a Production Red, an Australorp (the all black one), some Cuckoo Marans (white skin and beaks), and Barred Rocks (yellow skin and beaks).
