    Hello, 3 new baby chicks (picked them up from a farmer friend as fertilized eggs and my broody hen hatched them), was wondering what everyone thought about breeds. My guesses were Austrolorps and Barred Rock, my farmer friend is partial to heritage breeds. I plan to call her to hear what her guesses are too, but figured I'd post here as well.
    These pics are the chicks at 1 day old!--

    I think top and bottom photo are Black Australorps - though I have never seen them as 1 day old chicks. The one in the middle, can't figure out the coloring
