    I am curious as to what breed you think these 3 mystery babies are. These chicks do not have green legs, so the easy guess of EE is not available. [​IMG]

    They are actually chicks that I am receiving from msheets that she had hatched. She got an assortment and is unsure what these might be. I'm just wondering what they could be, or what they could be mixed with. She said they have the chipmunk stripes if that helps any.

    All of them have real wide & flat combs, one looks like it's a split comb & two have smooth ones with hardly any "bumps." The black austrolorps & buff orpington chicks have skinny pointy type combs, nothing like these 3. And #1 & #2 have the chipmunk stripes, so cute! :)

    Anyone have any guesses as to what they might be? I like to research any new breeds that I get so I know what to expect and these little ones are going to be a complete mystery! Lol!

    Please help me with any guesses for these chicks. I have been researching but without knowing exactly where to look, I'm not doing well.

    Ok, so I looked back at the hatching thread that msheets and I had posted on and of the many breeds that she had posted, I believe these may be Barnevelders. The reason I say this is because of this link right here.

    http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl...es?q=Barnevelder+chicks&um=1&hl=en&tbs=isch:1

    If you scroll down to the post with the picture of the 2 light colored Barnevelders, and continue scrolling on that post, they look like what these chicks will feather out to be. If so, I will be thrilled as i love the color! [​IMG] What do yall think?
