    I know these aren't the best pictures. I am very new at this chick thing. Our neighbor gave us 7 chicks about 6 days ago, but they were almost 3 weeks old when I got them from a neighbor. I thought maybe someone could help me with breed, he told me what he thought, it sounded all greek to me and have NO idea what he said, and at the time I didn't think it mattered, but now I am curious. Right now, we call them the red, white, and tan ones. :) Oh, and there are some guineas in there with them, I know what they are.

    one of the white ones:

    red ones (I know it's a bit brown now, but it USED to be red) :)

    tan ones.

    Another of a white one...

    and a fun one :)

    And if anyone wants to take a guess on gender, Id LOVE to know that too :)

    With my chickies!
    The red ones might be an EE'r or Ameraucana. The white ones looked like a Leghorn to me, but not sure about tans. Maybe they're orpingtons??

    I am convinced one of those white ones is a boy. I hope it's the same one that is in that picture... Id hate for them both to be!

    That white one that is hovering over the others... He's the one I have always thought looked like he should be a rooster. Obviously with no experience, it was just a guess. :)

    The White ones looks like White Rocks, the 1st one pictured looks like a cockerel. The Buff ones look like Buff Orpingtons. The Brown/ red ones might be Partridge Rocks, wait for them to feather out more and post more pictures [​IMG]

    Hope all your whites don't look like that one! White rocks will be good for eating in about 16 weeks. White leghorns... well... soup?
