Hi guys...sold 4 BR roosters on Saturday and heard some little peeps from our Atwood's store in Tyler. Of course I had to stop and replace the roosters with 4 new babies. YEAH! They're tagged as pullets but time will tell on that issue. I've learned my lesson with the BR's. Ha! I have BO's and RIR's so I know these aren't either of those.

Not sure what hatchery Atwoods uses...maybe Ideal here in Texas. I also would like help on the best way to remove their wing bands. I don't have any experience with these. Any help is greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

Top two are easter eggers (hatcheries call them ameraucana/auracana)

Next one could be a Jersey Giant or Australorp, or maybe a black sexlink

The last one... Mottled Java?

I have 6 Atwoods babies in my brooder right now, too!

The top 2 appear to be EE's

The 3rd I am not sure.....I have 2 brown/black sex links in the brooder and they're definently not colored the same so they couldn't be those...

The last one is just ADORABLE!

You might be right about #4. I looked at pics of MJ chicks in the "Breed" section and they look very similar. I hope you're right.

You might be right on! I just looked on Ideal's website and my little mottled chick DOES look like the Exchequer Leghorn! Cool...thanks for your response.
