    I split an order with a friend and we were'nt completely sure which chicks were what [​IMG] I'm supposed to have 2 black austrolorp, 2 red star, 2 buff orpington, 2 easter eggers. Is that what it looks like or can you tell. The pictures aren't that great.

    Thanks

    I see two Black Australorps, at least one Easter Egger and one Buff Orpington. The rest look like Red Stars to me (in the lower pic. The upper pic looks like there could be 2 BO's), although Buff Orpingtons can vary a little and EE's can be anything. EE's usually have a pea comb, whereas Red Stars should have single combs. Do any of the little orangeish chicks have a pea comb?

    I'll try to get better pictures after they have settled in a bit more. They've been eating, drinking, and now I think they're ready for a nap. I was pretty sure I had the black austrolorps right, but my friend ordered silver marans and after looking at the pictures on the mpc website, they are very similar to the ba. We can swap them out if we think we got it wrong. I'll look closer at their combs, I think the yellow one may be an ee. I've never had chicks before so I'm not familiar with comb types
