    I've been researching pictures, but haven't found many that has the chick pictured. I'm curious to know what breeds I may have. Thank you for looking!

    The black one looks like an Australorp, the white one is either a cochin or light brahma (not a good enough pic of face and legs), and the other 2 maybe brown leghorn or EE? Again hard to tell from the pics. Cute chicks [​IMG]

    The brown ones look like brown leghorns to me - along with their brown leghorn coloring, they also have straight combs and yellow legs.

    White one looks like a light Brahma.

    Can't help you with the others.

    lt brahma, australorp and can't see leg color well enough to guess the others, but I agree with brown leghorn if they have yellow legs

    Thank you so much for the quick replies! I checked out feathersite, which was very helpful, and I think you guys are right. The only one I wasn't sure about was the black one. I had seen a picture of a Jersey Giant, and thought that was it, but the picture of the Australorp looks like it too. Thanks again!

    the easiest difference to tell the two is that the Jersey Giant will have yellow bottoms of feet and the australorp will have white....
