    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.

    The black one with the white spot on its head appears to be a barred rock.

    The brown striped ones look like my easter eggers did but a lot of the chicks look the same when they are that little from what I've seen.

    Is it possibly a Sicilian Buttercup?

    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. :)

    Is that a standard breed? I don't remember seeing that one but who knows.

    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...

    In the first picture the bird with the distinct white in the chipmunk pattern may be a welsummer, mine looks just like that. The Ee's are less distinct.
