    Here are my babies who are about one week old today. I got them from MPC and couldn't be more pleased! They're happy and healthy and I've become obsessed with them...actually make my husband call me a few times a day with updates. Can't believe how quickly they've grown in just the first week!
    I ordered a Dominique, an EE, a Wellsummer, a Barred Plymouth Rock and a Golden Campine but the two black ones look the same as do most of the others...any ideas?

    I'm no pro but I have a distinct feeling that the brown one that's always laying down and looking to the left is the easter egger. To me he has that look in his eye.

    The wellsummer and the golden seem to be the similar brown ones.

    And the dominique and the barred plymoth are the similar black ones.

    I think it's too early with these similar-colored/patterned breeds to tell quite yet tho.

    Then again, I'm a noob and don't own any yet.

    First pic-
    Welsummer, EE, Campine
    Welsummers are chipmunks w/ a distinct V pattern on their heads
    Campines look almost like little leapards to me..

    Domiques and BR's look alike- I think they have different combs.
    BRs have a single comb. I think dominiques have a rose comb?

    If you ordered pullets, your Dominique will have slighter darker legs, like they have a grey spray on them.
