    Close! The first one might be hard to guess, though!

    your first one looks just like 4 of ours looked at that age.....they are now about 3 weeks..... still trying to figure out what they are...LOL. When we bought them from the store, we were told they were Australorps....but I am not for sure because I have been told here they are BR but possibly males because of the spots on their heads [​IMG] I don't mind 1 roo but I don't want all 4 to be roo's.

    I was looking at combs and feathers.......and I think I see 3 cockerals. But that wasn't the question, I guess!

    I though BR for #1 and EE for the others. What are they actually?

    [​IMG] That's one of the benefits of breeding 20-some-odd breeds and having had a zillion others...I've seen all the chicks A LOT!!
