    I agree that it is still to early to tell. Many chicks look alike when they are just hatched babies. You will probably have to wait until they feather out a bit more before you will be able to tell for sure. The do have grey legs, so that should be able to give someone a pretty good hint as to what they are though. [​IMG]

    Agree, too early to tell. But they sure are CUTE! I have 42 eggs in the Hovabator and 25 hatchery chicks ordered to add to them. Can't wait til the little cuties all arrive (Nov 13-18).

    Congrats on your babies. Where did you get them?

    To early to tell. My guesses are Barred Rocks, Austrolorps, or Jersey Giants. Those are the most likely breeds.

    Quote:I don't think they can be Rocks b/c they have dark legs and no white stuff on top of the head.

    Quote:Not to argue, but both Aussies and Jersey Giants have more white/cream/yellow on them than these chicks (at least, as far as I can see). And BR should have a dot on their heads, along with the white parts. IF they have a white spot on their throats, my guess would be Black Sex Links.
