    I'm completely new to raising chickens and having a great time getting to know my 4 week old girls (at least I hope they're all girls!) We bought them from the local grain store and my daughter picked out six chicks that all looked completely different. Any thoughts on their breeds?

    First up is Drew. I'm pretty sure she's a barred rock.

    Next is Mrs. McCluskey.

    Here's Juno. I'm posting 2 pictures of her because one shows her coloring and the other shows what she looks like.

    Meet Popple.

    Now for Ginger. I'm posting 2 pictures of her too because I couldn't get one picture that really showed what she looks like.

    And last but not least is Dolly.

    Well, they don't really look like pure breds. DId the feed store say they were all female? and you can ask them what breeds. [​IMG] If they didn't assure you they were all girls then you most likely have some boys too. [​IMG]

    Drew is a Barred Rock, Juno and Ginger look like EE's.

    Quote:According to the grain store they're females but I've heard that sometimes they get it wrong. All we were told is that they are brown egg layers.

    I am not too good at guessing breed – when they get a day or two older, I am better at guessing cockerel/pullet.

    Drew – Marans? Or Barred Rock (but is really dark)

    Mrs. M – Columbian Wyandotte

    Juno - partridge something

    Popple - maybe a Delaware

    Ginger - ?

    Dolly – Production type hen – red star?





    All adorable.

    [​IMG] Valmoisy, they are so cute! I hatched 26 mutts some are really cool looking birds. Hmmm, i'm wondering also how many hens / roos i have. I purchased some chicks they all arrived dead [​IMG] except two and i believe one of those is a rooster as it tried to crow today [​IMG]

    If you click the picture it will enlarge.

    Barred Rock (Maran would have white legs)
    Columbian Wyandotte (rose comb)
    Partridge Rock
    Guessing Popple is a Delaware, their colombian pattern isn't as strong as other breeds in columbian.
    Production Red/ hatchery Rhode Island Red
    Red Star or Gold Comet, a sex link.
