I posted in the breed section and then I found this one so please forgive me for it being in 2 places.
see the one with specks all over it? I am not sure what breed it is.
These all came from Ideal Poultry today. I will try to get better pictures.


What I believe I have from this Pullet Surprise Special

1. Buff Orpington
2. Barred Rock
3. RIR
4. Black Australorp ?
5. Not sure what the dotted chick is
6. Possibly some Easter Eggers?

There are 26 chicks there

1. Roo White Leghorn with blue stripe on his head.

Its hard to say looking at Ideal poultry's website they dont carry some of the breeds you listed. I dont see buff orps, or RIR, or austrolorps on their list of breeds.

And other breeds I'm all that familiar with, so cant really help you out. They have Buff of other breeds though. About the only one I can say for sure is the little black chick with the white dot on its head is a Barred Rock.
They carry all three.

Ahh odd they dont list them on their selections then.

I looked under brown egg layers, and none were listed there.

Ahh nevermind, I looked under Dark brown layers, not brown! lol. I'll delete the old post.

In that case it looks like you have quite a few buff orps there. :)

Yeah, I don't know why they consider them 'dark brown layers' I've seen birds and owned birds from their selection and they're more milk chocolate or orange brown than dark brown...
