    We got some chicks a few weeks ago but don't know what they are. They are supposed to be good layers. Does anyone know what they are? Click on the images:

    Pics are way small even when enlarged so hard to tell
    Black ones could be Australorps, black sex-links or black Giants
    Browns could be brown leghorn or partridge rock

    The ones with the black stripes on their backs and the eyes that look like chipmuncks or eyeliner are 100% Easter Eggers. That's my opinion anyways. AND I think the black ones are Australorps.

    Most EE's have green or slate legs. The one I see appears to have yellow or white legs. Also there are a lot of breeds out there that start off with chipmunk stripes. (Not saying they aren't EE's, but there are lot's of possibilities). I would have to see if they have muffs to say for sure.

    brown ones that look like chipmunks look like my Welsummer chicks. cool teracotta colored speckled eggs.
