    I bought 5 different chicks without being told what breeds they were. I'm pretty sure one is a Buff Orpington and one is a Rhode Island Red. I'm not sure of the other three. Maybe a Barred Rock, Easter Egger and Black Australorp. Any guesses?

    BA-Black Austrolorp, 2
    BO-Buff Orpington, 1
    EE-Easter Egger, 1
    RIR-Rhode Island Red, 1

    But, the EE could also be a Welsummer, a Speckled Sussex and a million other things.A lot of chicks look like a chipmunk.It could turn out as a SS when it grows up, so post pics when it's a adult!

    agree except for the EE at this age, give it more time - I think it is something different

    Here is a better photo of Pippa, one of my black chicks. Some of her wing tips are white. And her feet are black and orange. I am guessing an Easter Egger? Thanks for your replies.
     

  5. I know this is old, but @dgunderman could you post pictures of your chicks?We may be able to fully guess what your Chip,unk chick is.
