    Hi everyone!

    I’m brand new to the chicken world and was hoping someone could help me guess the breed of my lil ones. And I know they’re still to young but feel free to guess pullet or roo. The two feathered legs came from the Bantam bin and the other two came from the GLW pullet bin but I have serious doubts about the yellow chick. I believe they are about 3 weeks old, Henrietta is the largest with Nugget being tiny, at 2.5 weeks she? was the same size as my 2 day old EE.

    Yellow-Henrietta
    Black w/feathered legs- Little Finger
    Yellowish w/feathered legs- McFluffkins
    Wild type-Nugget

    I don't see any GLW. Henrietta maybe a Red sex-link, both McFluffkins could be a Cochin or a d'Uccle (I can't tell if it has a beard or not), Little finger could be a Cochin (what comb type does it have?), is nugget smaller then the others? It looks like it could be a Brown Leghorn.

    I don’t have any better pics of McFluffkins but I don’t recall seeing a beard unless it’ll be very subtle.

    I’ll have to check Little Finger when I get back to the house.

    Nugget is definitely the smallest. I believe it’s about 3 weeks and it’s as small as my 3 day old Easter Eggers.

    I have zero experience with production breeds, so I won't comment on your first chick. :) But the Cochin appears to be Golden Laced. With a single comb, no beard/muffs, and feathered legs, I believe you have a Mille Fleur Booted bantam, as well. Since the wildtype has a distinct white patch of down on its chest, Spangled OEGB. :D Looks just like mine. :)

    Is the Easter Egger a bantam or standard size?

    The true Easter Egger should be standard.

    Alrighty. But I guess it's hard to tell scale from pictures. ;) Probably isn't an OEGB, then, but I still feel like he/she is of spangled coloration.

    Much too early - please post new photos at 8 weeks of age, when they are fully feathered out.
