    I got these at Rural King. They are from Cackle Hatchery. There a mystery to me. I do know that I got black sex links and barred rocks. But these aren't them. [​IMG]

    The greyish ones with white wings have greyish orange legs.

    This one has a darker grey back.

    The only chicks I've had that started off gray and feathered in white were white jersey giants. But mine had dark colored legs - I think they finished off kind of a cross between slate and green. Your baby's legs don't look dark like a giant's. So I'm not sure, but it's worth watching...

    The buff one looks like a buff orp. I'm not sure about the middle one. Could it be a white rock?

    just for sanity sake, the grey ones in the pics are all the same kind, the yellow pics are the same one also. [​IMG]

    The whites look like my White Jersey Giants did when they were chicks.

    Are the Jersey Giants supposed to be big chicks? These are smaller and are a week or so old.

    Also, do Jersey Giants have greenish/orange legs?
