    I have ten new babies that are 3 days old, and the little black one is about 2- 2 1/2 weeks old.

    Are the striped ones smaller? Maybe banams of some breed? Just guessing.

    The lady I got them from said that the mama of some of them is a game hen, but she doesn't know what kind??? The mama of the rest of them (and I don't even know which ones) is possibly a Delaware. Here is a pic of her

    Your last two look like a couple of the chicks I got this spring. The black one looks like my astrolop, mostly black with those white feathers showing up unexpectedly.

    The other with the chipmunk looking strips on his back looks like mine that is some time of old english game.
    However I am new at this.

    By the way, I am from Huntingdon in west TN. Are you anywhere near by per chance????

    OMGOSH Yes if that is cedar remove right away..your chicks may die from it! Anyway, yours look EXACTLY like mine and the chipmunk looking one is prob a brown sex link pullet (that's what mine is for sure)...the white chipmunk one prob a male brown sex link (the browns are sexed by color) and the little yellow one...does it have feather feet? I can't tell...if so it's prob a salmon faverolle (if it has five toes) otherwise it may be a leghorn too, the yellow with the red on the back is prob a red sex link. And the black one is either a black sex link or maybe an astrolarp. Where did you get them? If you got them from your feed store or from TSC then they are prob sex links and a leghorn. Good luck! They are sure adorable!
