    HELP!!! [​IMG]

    I have 4 chicks that I need help identifying the breed and the sex. I bought them at the feed store. What do you think these babies are?

    I think that this is an Ameracauna roo. Am I correct? He is a bantam. @ 4-5 weeks

    [​IMG]

    These next 3 are 2-3 weeks old.

    I think that this is a roo but I have no idea on the breed. He has 4 toes and his legs are a mixture of black and white. His new feathers that are coming in have some white. I don't think striped though.

    I think a pullet? Same breed as above. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I think that this is another roo, RIR I think. What do you think? I think that the sebright is a pullet...since she has not shown any pinkish/red.

    Thanks for your help and I HOPE they aren't all roo's. [​IMG]

    I'm not sure about the first one (VERY pretty bird though!).

    Edited to add: I took another look at the first pic and noticed it has green legs. Because of this, I would guess it to be an EE, but you said it was a bantam?

    The second and third are EE's... I have EE chicks that look exactly the same as your two. Usually the darker EE chicks have some black on their legs.

    The third I would guess as a RIR too, but not as sure about him as I am the other two.

    Is it possible they could all be EE's?

  3. my guess
    EE-roo-beautiful
    Black Australorp-roo
    Barred Rock-Female(you can see alittle of the white coming in at tip of some feathers in the pic)
    RIR-roo
    the 2-3 weekers are hard to guess at, alteast for me.

    p.s. I raised all the breeds I guessed and I am just going by how yours look compared to when my girls were that age

    My guesses are:

    1. Mixed breed of OEGB Rooster (real pretty)

    2. & 3. BLack Austalorp or Jersey Giant (depending on bottom of feet color) Gray or pinkish =Austalorp, Yellow=Jersey Giant
    Sex: I think #2 is a rooster and not sure about #3

    4. RIR - sex: Rooster?

    I can't tell about your Golden Seabright.

    1. EE
    2. black australorp...looking at feet maybe not. Jersey perhaps.
    3. black australorp
    4. red or golden sex-link

    That's my story and I'll stick to it until I edit the post again

    I was thinking EE (sorry I said Ameracauna) for the first one. His tail feathers are a little on the thin side. [​IMG]

    On the black ones their feet are grey and white (well pinkish really) No offense to anyone but I was worried that they were Jersey Giants. Bantams and Giants...what a mix!

    Guess who has waddles..or wattles..(hmm will have to look that up [​IMG] ) The little red boy. He has me a little scared...I have heard lots of talk about RIR roos. I heard someone on a list I am on say that they more they are handled the worse they are...if so I am in trouble. I have an Elmira for a daughter..."love 'em and hug 'em and squeeze 'em" [​IMG]

    Thanks for all your help!! I am totally enjoying the forum and my chickies!

    Quote:I got three Jersey Giants from Meyer, I can't really say their feet underneath are yellow, its a very vague color. What would the chances be that Meyer didn't send me Jersey Giants?

    I am wondering if your two black with white down are different breeds. The first one looks exactly like my Jersey Giants, but the second one seems to have a different shaped beak, like not as long, and thicker looking. Hmmm

    [​IMG] The feed store that I bought them from had a Privett Hatchery sign...soooo I assume that is where they came from. Both of the black ones looked enough alike that I thought that they were the same breed. Silly me I was choosing them because they did not have the yellow spot on their head. [​IMG]

    But after searching and looking at chicks on feathersite...I have no idea what they are. sigh [​IMG]

    Thank you all for your posts!
