    Just got 3 chicks from Atwoods last night and have little to no clue what they are. All 3 are from the bantam bin (asstd. straight run).

    From the forum threads I'm guessing the middle one is an Easter Egger? Any hints on the other 2 would be welcome. They are 4-5 days old and all have clean legs w/4 toes. I can upload more pix after my camera is done charging.

    UPDATE: the striped one is probably an old english according to the store associate that helped us. And on the right, possibly an Australorp. Left is still a mystery.

    The middle one is probably an Old English Game, since the chick doesn't have a beard or muffs.
