    Hi all,

    My partner and I became first time chicken mummy and daddy today! Just wondering if someone could please help me out with the breed of this one as in the excitement of picking up my babies I completely forgot what breeds they are! We have another 12 and I can pick 3 breeds so I'm sure I'll upload some more pictures over the next day or so.

    Maybe an Ancona or Exchequer Leghorn chick, or possibly a Silver Sebright. It's hard to tell at such a young age though some chick breeds are easier to identify than others, so try posting the rest of the chicks. :)

    Thanks for your reply Veer67. I think she might be a buff sussex, but you're right - too hard to tell when they're this little. We have a mixture of different chicks, and the only ones I know for sure are the 2 silkies and 2 plymouth rocks.
