    We have one week olds that we've got some guesses about their breeds, but not sure - they were "rare mix" and one is a "rare marans", but I don't know who is what![​IMG]
    I am thinking either barnevelder, silver penciled rock, or maaaybe an easter egger?

    Two pics of the same chick. She has fluffs on her legs. I was thinking she might be our marans, but she doesn't look exactly like any of the marans chicks I find pictures of.

    Clean legged, little grey smudges on the top of her head.

    Maybe a buckeye or rhodie? Maturing slower than the others.

    She just looks like a generic yellow chick to me. So I figure I'll just have to wait and see with this one!

    Thanks for any help or advice!

    Shots in the dark, but I think...

    1. Barnevelder if it has a single comb...
    2. Partridge Brahma if it has a pea comb...
    3. Not sure...
    4. Looks like a Red Sex Link really. If it has a pea comb it could be a Buckeye...
    5. White Leghorn...

    You're definitely right on the barnevelder! :) I still don't know on the other ones. The yellow chicks especially have me baffled. They Gros so fast!![​IMG]

    Update! My chicks have grown, so I thought I would show you guys. :) I have a buff brahma, golden cuckoo marans, delaware, barnevelder, buckeye, and the little yellow chick is still a mystery so far.[​IMG]

    I was gonna say you don't have a barnevelder. The white one could be a deleware.

    The yellow one looks like a buff brahma if she has a pea comb.

    Lol so now that I have a pretty good idea, I get predictions! ;) I kid, I do appreciate the help.
    I had sent pictures of the chicks in before they got much feathering and asked for help IDing them, and those are the breeds I was told-- I'm fine with her being an easter egger though, I'd prefer a blue layer! :) The red chick could only be a rhodie or a buckeye-- so your vote's for rhodie? Thanks for the comments guys! :)
    The unknown breed I did not post again, she went to a different chick enthusiast. She's definitely not a buff brahma though-- clean legs, very pale blueish-wheaten colored feathers coming in, but she does have a peacomb. I'll text her new mamma and ask for an updated photo to share here. The white one I just posted an updated photo is most likely a delaware, as mentioned-- she's spot on the description and photos.

    Production Red. Most hatchery Rhode Island Reds are actually Production Reds. They are too light red and have a completely different body shape, they don't look anything like a real Rhode Island Red.
    And there are no guarantees for blue eggs from the Easter Egger. She could end up laying brown, green, or cream instead.

    Yes, you're right. I spoke too quickly, I simply meant I love having variety and I already have a couple that will be laying very dark eggs. We had an EE at my old job that laid quite a wide variety of blues and greens, and another that even laid "pink" eggs. :) They're fun. Thanks for the advice.
