Does Anyone Know What Breed These Are

    I recently purchased my first chicks. Can anyone tell the breed form this pic?

    Here is a more recent picture. Are we still thinking SS and Barred Rock?

    These are the at 13 weeks. Any idea of the breed or sex? I think I know but would like some input. Especially on the brown chickens.

    The brown ones look like speckled Sussex, Brown Leghorn, or partridge rock. Do you have any new pics of them? They should be more more feathered out...

    I agree with chickenpooplady on the black chicks, but the brown ones have more of a campine-like feather pattern than speckled or partridge. (I think it may be partridge)

    Very cute chicks! I agree that the black ones are barred rocks, but I don't know about the brown ones.
  4. Chickenfan4life
    The brown ones could also be partridge rocks.

    I think Chickenfan4life is exactly correct! :)

    Thank you. I couldn't decide if the brown were SS or Brown Leghorns.
