    The three dark brown striped ones were packing peanuts, any idea what breed they might be?

    Not sure on the barred guys

    but the bottom picture brown chick looks suspiciously like a chick I have that I was told on here is a partrige Rock. I thought it was an EE at first coz her legs were kinda brownish like your chicks'

    Yeah at first I thought they were EEs but they are too dark, EEs seem to be lighter. However they DO look just like my Welsummer did when she was small... [​IMG]

    I'm guessing your brown striped birds are partridge rocks.

    BR roos are lighter colored with even white and black barring. Males also have less dark washes on the front of their legs than the girls. BR females have larger black bars than white. Not sure on roo sexlinks.[​IMG]

    Neither look like BR's, BR's have yellow legs. Either they are both male sex links, or maybe you have a cuckoo marans.

    The one on the left in picture 2 looks to be a red sex link male. I'll go with Partridge rocks on the chipmunk ones. No idea on the one on the far right.

    Quote:Maybe my screen color is different, but they both look like they have yellow legs to me [​IMG] Cuckoo marans, even the cockerels, are much darker than barred rocks.

    The legs look white to me. Anyhow, here's a BR cockeral for the OP's comparison.
