Soliciting best guesses for these chipmunk chicks.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I had thought that 2 of these chicks were EE's, but I'm really not sure. These are pics of 4 "chipmunk" chicks that I'm trying to identify. I ordered EE's, Welsummers, Buttercups, Speckled Sussex which are my KNOWN "chipmunk" types, but I also ordered the "Ornamental Layer Collection" which adds in others that I can't name. 

 

Any guesses as to what any of these are?

 

Started out wanting a few chickens because why not? What could go wrong there? We'd just go ahead and offer the "extras" on craigslist. Well, who knew my DH would take to them ALL so well? It's okay we wound up with 3 Roos, and only 17 hens, we'll just order some new HENS later! Sounds like a plan. Somehow, the planned 15 or so turned into 32...

EEs and Welsummers is my guess.

YAY! Someone posted a pic of a black and white EE before that was so gorgeous she left me hoping to get so lucky. I got my hopes up on that one and then began doubting I really got so lucky LOL  It really doesn't matter what they are, we will love them to bits regardless, but I feel like I wished hard enough and won the life lottery or something right now! There were only 5 survivors of my order of 38 chicks, so we definitely won with all of them, this just makes my heart smile which I really, REALLY needed today! We already have a Wheaton EE and she's sweet as sweet can be.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
