    We received these little ones about a 1.5 weeks ago. They are claimed to be an assortment of heritage breeds but otherwise I was given no other info. as my husband didn't ask many questions. (they were a bit of a surprise from my husband, I was planning on getting chicks, but had yet to go get them yet - surprise!).

    I am yet to figure out picture posting so bare with me here....the photos are of them at 1 week old.

    4 & 5 look like Easter Eggers. The others need to feather in a bit more.

    My Easter eggers have fluffy cheeks so I'm not sure, but #4 is really nice looking!

    Thanks! #4 is the widest and largest of the group. It was also the first to get all those wing feathers. #3 is my attitude chick, might be leaning toward Roo already but I know they are still so young so I can't really know.
