    I recently got a few chicks and I don't know what breed they are. I know I have two bantams and an EE, but I don't know the rest. :confused: also, if there's any way you can tell the sex of any of these chicks by their feather color id love to know! Thanks!! :D[​IMG]

    Where did the birds come from? Hatchery or breeder? Are they pure breds or chances of mixed breeds?

    They came from my local feed store and I'm not sure where they got them. They said they were all pure breeds

    No idea on the first two.
    Partridge Cochin
    Could easily be the EE
    Brahma
    production red
    barred Rock or cuckoo Marans, I can't see the leg color well. yellow= Rock, white/pink = Marans.
