    I received my 26 chicks today, along with the 15 specific breed chicks I bought I also bought the 10 of the Meyer hatchery leanns adoptable chick which are any breed straight run I'm pretty sure I have figured most out but I have 2 of these cuties they look a bit like my buff brahmas did but they have no feathers on their legs.[​IMG]

    Does it have a white spot on the top of the head? can we get a top pic to see the back markings? and what color are the legs?

    Ok not the best picture because they are under the light but here they are.
    Yes it has a spot and yellow legs. My phone just died but it has a dark wide strip down its back.

    So the white spot on a chipmunk striped chick would be a male of one of the auto sexing breeds, I'm pretty sure. I'm not sure right off what Meyer has, but it's likely a CCL cockerel. Or, I guess it could possibly be an Olive egger, and could be female depending on the cross they used. The hatcheries doing mixed or "designer" breeds is going to make breed ID a pain in the butt.

    Where did they come from? If a hatchery, which one? If a breeder, are they pure breds or could they be mixed?

    My husband says he got them from Royal King they are larger than the gray ones but I am not 100% sure they could be mixed

    I thought I had most of my chicks figured out but there is this one that kinda looks like the one I posted before so I thought it was the same now I'm not so sure.[​IMG][/IMG]
