    Hubby acquired these little guys/gals from work tonight. Any ideas to the breeds? He was told they are all laying chickens. Hopefully they won't be too annoying being in the house overnight until we get them a place set up tomorrow.

    I see a few Easter Eggers and Black Australorps, if you get individual photos we could help more. What is the temperature outside where you live? You have to keep the chicks warm with a heat lamp.

    They are currently inside with a heat lamp on them. We'll be moving them out hopefully tonight. We've had RIRs as babies before and a few other older ones another time. Our chicken coop has just aged a little since and is going to need some work before they go in.

    What part of them would you need photographed the most to tell?
