    We have 27 cuties, it looks like 5 obvious different breeds, two of them appear to be unique and the others all seem fit into one of 3 groups.

    Here is the one we have the most of:

    This type we have a bunch of, but i couldn't get any of them to sit still long enough to get a good pic of:

    This one we have 4 or 5 of, some with a little more white on the belly:

    This one is unique in this batch:

    and this one is also unique among its peers:

    Any guesses, i think we have a bunch of EEs (with thier fuzzy little faces), not sure about the rest...

    Quote:I think it looks like my Cuckoo Marans when she was a chick. I think that may be the start of barring on the wings. Should lay a really dark brown egg. I'd like to see more pictures in about a month. So many breeds look a like at this age!

    Not a Cuckoo Marans, but a Barred Rock.

    All other others except the bottom two are Easter Eggers. The bottom one is an Ancona.
