    So I am aware this is a impossible task but I'm just curious about your opinions! [​IMG] I have 4 chicks all hatched on the same day. Approximately 4.5 weeks old. We got the fertilized eggs from a friend who has mixed breeds of hens and roos so it's anyone's guess! We will be happy either way I just like the mystery of it all and enjoy trying to figure it out! Thanks for the input!

    #1 Marilyn Monroe or Marilyn Manson? I'm guessing that this one is a leghorn or mix leghorn because well, it looks exactly like my leghorn. I do know that their combs tend to grow faster and turn pink sooner than other breeds but what I noticed yesterday is the curling tail!!!

    #2 Sally or Sammy? So the green legs make me think EE but it's not cheeky like my other EE! Maybe EE + speckled sussex mix. This baby came from a white eggs which is throwing me off. As with #1 I noticed a curly tail yesterday!

    #3 Amelia or Amelio? I'm going with Barred Rock + buff cochin because well they have both on the farm we got them from and it looks like my BR but has feathered legs. This little baby is bigger than #1 and #2. She already squats down when you pick her up and is far more friendly then the others...not that that makes a difference.

    #4 Raquel or Rocky? Also looks very much like my Barred Rock. Also bigger than #1 and #2. No feathers on the legs. Maybe full Barred Rock? They do have BR hens and roos. This one got its tail fast! Very curious little chick that loves to explore!

    They are very young yet, give them a few more weeks. The first one is an obvious rooster.

    Amelia has really thick legs which would make me suspicious.
