    We got 7 BR (1 roo) and 6 mixed chicks 4.5 weeks ago. Need help with id on the 6. There are 3 varieties I believe....4 chicks are redish with two being much lighter red blondish. The other breed is big and black. Pics below. Also the BR Roos sticks out at this point...last pic. thanks for help. Willy

    redish birds

    Big Black..we call him OJ

    BR Roo I assume he is different than other 6 and nicer than most of the pullets (for now)

    Trying to wean em off the liight over next 2 weeks..some found the roost!

    Hard to tell. Black one could be Australorp, Jersey Giant, Wyandotte if his comb is rose. The others it is hard to tell. two may be RIR's? not sure. You will be able to tell a whole lot better when they are eight weeks old and more fully feathered.
