    We are new to chickens and picked up some chicks based on pictures of them as adults and got a little distracted at the feed store and didn't think to write down what they were. We were able to remember most of them but these three are a mystery to us. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Are they bantams or full grown?

    That's the thing, we got so distracted, we can't remember what we chose. I was hoping someone might recognize them but I am seeing lots of chicks look the same until they mature. Once they grow up, I'm sure we'll be able to figure it out.

    Out to pasture
    Please wait a few weeks and then post new photos of your chicks. We will be happy to figure what they are by then.

    These two unknown yellow ones are much smaller than the others. We got them at the same time but I have to think they are a week younger. 5 of the 7 have nice wing feathers but these yellow ones still don't.

    The other unidentified one is growing nicely and is developing her tail feathers and some large wings.

    This one is really starting to get a poof of feathers on her head. I see some Polish have this but it isn't quite as defined as hers is.

    Went to a chicken show for a local club yesterday and I think we finally figured out this one. She appears to be a brabanter. We saw a hen there that looked similar and then we did some searching for brabanter chicks and she looks like a lot of them.

    Wow how they've grown. Like I said above we identified one of the mystery chickens as a Brabanter. She is growing nicely and looks great:

    We still haven't ID'd the pair. Here is how they look now at about 8 weeks:

    Anyone know what this is?

    Still trying to figure out what these are. One of them is starting to show signs of being a Roo so we'd really like to ID them. Here is the latest picture. Anyone know?
