    Any takers on guessing what I've got? These came from TSC less than a week ago. I've got 9 altogether since losing one on day two. Five are dark and four are yellow. Their feathers appear to be white. [​IMG]

    The yellow one in the upper left has the face of an Orpington. The black one looks like an Australorp. Not sure about the other two.

    Thanks for the input! I'd be happy with an Orpington, but it didn't appear as though they were labeling what they had left as being orpingtons. All of the yellow ones look pretty similar, so they may all be the same breed. I've never raised chicks before, so it's all well over my head right now.

    Top left; possible brown leghorn
    Top right; possible partridge rock
    I still think Orpinton on bottom left but it could be white or buff Rock
    Bottom right; not sure about Australorp; looks like brown under the face [​IMG]

    Most of the farm stores around here will consolidated chicks that are left over into one or two tubs so they may not be what the tub is labeled.
