    The black chick I think is my "extra bonus". And the yellowish chick I'm wondering did they get mixed up with my cornish rocks, or is it a cornish rock?

    The bonus chick from McMurray is from their rare collection. I recommend checking their rare list and look at chick pics of each rare breed listed to try to find which matches. That's how I found out that my bonus chick was an Easter Egger! (Although the little critter favors a Barred rock baby).

    I was kind of thinking that the black one is a maran and the other is a red star. I got this from looking at pics on the mcmurray site. But I really have no idea.

    I'm thinking Cuckoo Marans for the black one, because BR's aren't exactly "rare"(thought most of the ones in their "rare" collection aren't either!)

    Not quite sure on the yellow one.

    Here are some new pics of the two birds in question.
    I'm pretty sure that the one is a cuckoo marans but now I'm wondering if its possible to tell sex yet. If not at about what age will it be to be sexed.

    And here is the other bird. I hope someone will be able to help out!

    I'd say Barred Rock or Cuckoo Marans, depends on leg color. Honestly McMurray's "rare" birds are never rare. Quite often people just get the extra unwanted Easter Egger roosters.

    Oh, and he's a definite boy telling by the white spot.



    Ah, saw the latest post -


    Does he have black and yellow legs? If so, he's no doubt a Barred Rock

    The black & white one looks like a Cuckoo Marans cockerel to me, but Ilia is right if his legs are yellow(ish)- not pink, then he's a Barred Rock. The other one looks like a New Hampshire.

    The second chick is absolutely a Red SL (gold comet, cinnamon queen, red star, etc...)
