Are there images of different breeds of chickens' chicks?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Id like to be able to make a comparison of my chicks with some pics of different breeds.  Mine are all mixed but possibly EE, Orpinton, Australorp, Faverolle or Ameraucanas.  The chicks look similar but do have some differences.  Im guess they are various mixes of these different breeds.  It might not be possible to tell but Id like to try.  Here are some pics.

Im particularly interested in this fella.  He is a lot larger and has much more white than the others.

They all hatched from greenish or bluish colored eggs so Im guessing their mothers were EE. I have many different rooster and many different hens that lay these colored eggs. I just collects a bunch for hatching under my broodies.  I have no idea even which hen(s) laid the eggs.

Feathersite is a good resource.  Here is a link to the chicks page: http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/BRKBabyChicks.html

Just click on the different breeds and it will take you to pictures of chicks in the various colors.  Have fun!

Why thank you  very much Meara.  I had forgotten that I posted this since I receive no replies.  I will definitely spend some time on this site.

Thanks again,

Robin
