How do I tell my new chicks apart?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have just gotten eight little chicks, and I'm having a difficult time telling them apart! I've figured out three, but here are the breeds:

Salmon Faverolles
White Cochin
Black Cochin
Dominique
Milli Fleur D' Uccle
White Silkie
Buff Laced Polish
Ameraucana
Brahma
Sebright


I put ten because we have lost twoūüėĘ

I suggest you go to Feathersite and look at the photos of the chicks for those breeds. Some, like Brahma and Ameraucana, come in different colors/patterns so you need to know which color you should have. Some have specific combs so you can get a clue there. Some have feathers on their legs. Some have specific leg colors. You may get clues based on size. Some you may just have to wait on.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

When they are 6 weeks old you can post individual pictures of them at "what breed or gender is this."
