    I have 3 chicks that I am unsure of breed. Maybe Australorp? The white one has me stumped! [​IMG]

    Where did you get these birds? The first looks to have too much white for an Australorp. My guess is that its an Ancona or another mottled breed. The other black chick does look like an Australorp. I'm not sure on the light bird. What color legs does it have? It could be an Easter Egger.

    The bottoms of the black bird look yellow to me--so I would guess Black Jersey Giant.

    White one could be Wheaten colored, but we would need to know the comb type and leg color to guess at breed.

    I agree, top bird is mottled something.

    The light bird has yellow legs. I received them through a young 4-H member in my nieces club. He receives donated eggs from a neighbor, and whatever he hatches out he gets to sell and keep the money for his own chickens, and other animals. We had a sad incident where we lost 8 bird from a loose neighborhood dog [​IMG], so bought his last chicks before winter came! The thrill of the unknown was so exciting, until I realized I hate the unknown! But, we have a variety of birds to keep a unique coop.
