    Hi, I am new to the forum...a kindergarten teacher who just hatched 12 baby chicks. The photos are of 5 of the "mixed-breed" chicks we hatched, now I'm curious what their breeds are. Please help if you can. Many thanks to you all![​IMG]

    I think I see Rhode Island Red chicks, and the little black one might just be a Barred Rock.

    It's hard to tell before they are all feathered out but I would guess the top one is an EE, the second one (on the left) looks like my RIRs did at that age but could be a sex-link (Rhode Island cross), third one (second pic on right) looks like a Barred Rock or a cuckoo maran, and I'm not sure at all about the 2 chicks in the last photo. I thought maybe welsumer on the left but the coloring is not quite right.
    They are all adorable!!! I bet the kids love them! I did this when I taught and it was awesome!

    Don't hold me to it, as I am a newbie with all the breeds, but

    pic 1 looks like my Speckled Sussex, though several breeds look like them, might have to wait.

    Pic 2, RIR (or of that variety)and barred rock (can't see the leg coloring, could be Cuckoo Maran)

    Pic 3 not sure

    No knocking me, just my initial opinion. I am still deciphering mine [​IMG] , so I am no expert...
