All chicks are female brown egg layers. Every thing else is hatchery choice straight run! I'm working on trying to figure out how to add pictures! Of the 2 goslings, one is yellow but doesn't look like Chinese as I've had those before. The other is a creamy yellow with a good bit of grayish brown on it. Possibly an African? The 2 ducklings are both solid brown. If the 2 Turkey poults, one is mostly black with yellow/white on face and underneath and the other is greyish/brown with black strips. Definitely not a bronze. They chicks are mostly yellow with some buff. I'll get picture as soon as I find out how!

    Welcome to BYC!

    Quite a few different breeds of chickens look the same when they are newly hatched chicks.
    You may want to wait until they are fully feathered before you start guessing their breeds.

    I can pick out red sex links!! They are the yellow with "rusty" stripes on their backs.


    Maybe black Spanish on the dark turkey.

    The geese look to be a Toulouse and an embden.

    Just a guess of course.

    Guessing is all I'm asking! I'm just doing this for fun! Are there solid yellow ebdems? All the ones I've seen were yellow and grayish.

    I think your solid yellow goslings are the embden.

    It's likely you got Red Sex Links, but please update when 6-8 weeks to confirm. Sorry I'm no good with the turkey/geese.
