    Nice to meet you all. I have posted pictures and I'm new here. I have some 4 h chickens that I adopted and have no idea what they are. I'm an urban chicken farmer. Look at my pics and see what you think. I have been told the lighter colored chicken is a Rhode Island Red, the darker older pullett is a Black Austrolorp. I was told the baby chick was a Amerucana or an Easter Egger or maybe a mix. What do you think? Thanks for welcoming me here. I'm not even sure of the sex so any and all info is apprecaited. I'm in Alabama and I hope the older chicks (pullets) I hope stay warm in these upper 30 degree temps until they can go out of quaratine into their awesome coop.!!![​IMG]

    does the orange have black in her? and the black one is not an Austrolorp because of the white in the chest. it looks like it has slate/grey legs. they both do. Dho they have muffs and beards? What kinda combs? single which is the line down the middle with ridges or is it a pea comb, which is bunched up. I would say the chick is an EE due to the green legs. Can you get head shots of the other two?

    I think they have single combs. The chick does have a bit of darker coloration on her but I would not say black. I will post some really good pics this weekend with my wifes camera. Thanks for your insight.
