Hi there! My boyfriend surprised me yesterday with two new baby chicks!! We have three adult hens: a Buff Orpington, a Silver Laced Wyandotte and an Easter Egger! Our two new baby chicks came from the local feed store. Signs on the chick boxes were all mix matched so we aren't positive what breed they are. I just called up to the store and talked to their chicken expert and described the babies. The blonde chick they believe is a New Hampshire Red. I looked at NHR chicks online and she looks like that's what she could be. The brown chick, on the other hand, is giving me some trouble to figure out. The lady from the feed store I spoke with on the phone believes the brown one to be a Welsummer or a Brown Leghorn. I googled those chicken breeds and they don't seem to match my brown chick. The brown chick has very noticeable white specks on the tip of her feathers. Please help us identify them! And while I'm here I'd like to ask two more questions to all you chicken experts. 1) The brown baby chick has a scab on it's wing, and when she extends her neck, you can see her skinny neck bone. Is that normal? Is it just feathers coming in? 2) Our adult hens have their own nesting boxes. But for some reason, whoever lays the first egg of the day sets which box the two others want to lay in. They make a lot of noise when waiting for that one nest box to become available. Why would that be? Just them being crazy ladies? Pictures of the new babies I need to identify: They got to come to work with me today Thank y'all for the help!!
