    I have a few slightly educated guesses of my chicken breeds. I have 7 "egg birds" from a meat and egg combo ordered from Murray Mcmurray. The "meat birds" are obvious because they are twice the size of all but 3 of my "egg birds" and yellow/turning white. My Leghorn rooster is obvious because he is the only little yellow/turning white chick
    I apologize I may have gone overboard with pictures lol!!! I have guesses and discriptions between each group of pics

    First chick I Think may be an auraucana/Americana? Her legs are very slightly grey.

    With the girls!
    The leghorn is most likely male. The others are hard to tell because they are so young. Good luck! quote name="LauraBeth0513" url="/t/934076/brand-new-to-this-i-have-7-chicks-i-am-unsure-of-breed#post_14272450"]I have a few slightly educated guesses of my chicken breeds.
