    I agree---the last ones look like Barred Rocks--not sure about the others--sorry. [​IMG]

    On second thought---The chick in the first picture has greenish legs so I think it might be an EE. The second pic didn't show up--maybe a messed up link.

    My Barred Rocks are 6.5 weeks old and that is exactly what they look like too. Good luck with the rest!

    The chipmunk chicks can also be EE's or Welsummers...my Wellies look more like chipmunks than my EE's do.

    If the black/white don't turn out to be BR or Dominiques maybe they are Marans. The black/white birds didn't have white spots on their heads? Marans have a white spot on their heads with the roos having the larger spots.

    This is a Welsummer at two weeks:

    Agree with everyone. Black and white ones are barred rocks, the black one with feathered legs is a cochin, the white one with feathered legs is a cochin. Cute chickens, I bet they had a ball out for the first time.

    White ones without fuzzy feet could be White Rocks. They are often sold along with EE, and Barred Rocks. Great looking group of teenagers. I call em teenagers because they are not quite grown and a little clumsy.
