    I got these 3 free chicks with my BCM order from Pine Pride Hatchery. I haven't got a clue what breed they are. Any ideas??
    Sorry about the poop, they weren't cooperating;)

    I think they are Golden Phoenix.

    The last one may be a red phoenix - google them and see what you think!

    I'm not familiar with Phoenix. I was going to say maybe Easter Eggers.

    I think they might be easter eggers, I went on the Pine Pride hatchery site and I don't think they list Phoenix, not sure though! [​IMG]

    I don't think they are EE because they all have straight combs. Their legs are all white as far as I can tell, although #1 is darker so maybe showing some yellow?

    Are these chicks bantam or standard?

    I checked their wbsite and they do have Black Breasted Red Old English Bantams and those guys are chipmunk-y. So are these guys bantam sized?

    No, they are standard size.

    The 3rd one looks like my Speckled Sussex. I can't really help with the first 2, though.

    ETA: I've never seen a Delaware chick, but could the first 2 be Dels?
    ETA #2: Since they don't carry SSs, I'm saying #3 is a Welsummer.

    The first one looks semi-similar to a chick I hatched a few weeks ago.. His dad is a red sex link and his mom was either a RIR, red sex link, or production red
