Any good websites to tell what breed of chick/ducklings I'm buying from atwoods?

    Hello! My partner and I are getting everything ready for our baby birds and wondering is there a site that shows or explains what each breed of of bird looks like when there chicks/ducklings? We are going to buy from murry mcmurry later on, but we are going to go with atwoods birds first.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Lots of hatchery websites will show photos of the birds as both adults and chicks. Feathersite does a good job also but you'd need to search each breed individually.

    Two words of advice: don't trust that the breeds they're selling are actually what they say they are, because a lot of the time, they aren't; and whatever you do, don't buy straight run unless you're comfortable butchering lots of cockerels.
