    I have chicks for the first time, and like many others, I'm trying to identify them. Here's a pic of what I think is a black Australorp. Do you agree? [​IMG]
    Also...what would the black and gray speckled one be? I'm having a hard time with this, going between a couple different sites. I got the meat and egg combo from McMurray, it's their egg layers, broilers, and that's with a couple of rare breeds thrown in. Here's another pic:
    [​IMG] I know I have a buff cochin, a golden polish, but the gray ones I'm having trouble with. Doesn't the one in the pic above look blue? Maybe a blue andalusian? In the background are the yellow and gray and black ones...columbian wyandottes? Please Help! :)

    Thank you for the hints...I now know it's an Australorp, and as for the one that looks blue: a single comb. [​IMG]

    I think so too, and I think the ones that I thought were Colombian Wyandottes are Silver Spangled Hamburgs.

    OK..so now I think they are silver sebrights! Wow... this is fun, but challenging. There's one chick left that I'm not sure about. It's a small white one with a few gray spots. I'll know someday. :)

    You are going to have fun watching them develop to know for sure what breeds you have. Enjoy those cute chicks!

    Identifying these chicks is kind of an obsession of mine right now, one I feel a little silly about! :)
