    I have 8 new chicks, about 3 weeks old, (although one seems much younger, maybe 2 weeks old or so). We got them from a farmer who had many different types of chickens. He had a list of what they were supposed to be, but I think we ended up with some surprises! Here is the list of what he said were possibilities- Brahmas, Buff Orpingtons, Jersey Giants, Black Australorp, Ameracaunas, RIR's, and NH Reds.

    #1 We call her Magellan, she is VERY curious of the world outside her box.

    #2 Similar to #1, but whiter tips on feathers

    #3 Darker brown head, looks like a calico cat.

    #4 I think she is a Light Brahma, has feathered feet

    #5 Dark Brahma? Has feathered black feet (she is our sweetest chick, loves to cuddle)

    #6 Was supposed to be a Black Jersey Giant, but she has a white spot on her head and is developing white tips. Maybe a Barred Plymouth Rock?

    #7 Golden color, yellow legs
    Here is another shot of #7, on the left.

    #8 Our little runt. She is developing white wings. Has yellow legs.

    The whole gang-

    Thanks for your guesses, does anyone else want to give it a try?

    We took them outside yesterday for the first time. In a large baby containment fencing system. It was hysterical, with all that extra room they were flapping around like a chick mosh pit. This is my first experience with chickens, I find them to be so entertaining.

    1 and 2 are NH reds for sure. No guess on the sex or the others
