    Would anyone like to help me figure out what breeds these cuties are? Still have a while to go before we know the sexes, as we just got them yesterday. I'm thinking they're no more than a few days old.

    First one could be an Old English Game. The second one is definitely a mottled Cochin. I think the third is a Belgian d'Anvers, or maybe be Seabright.

    The first one looks like a Rhode island red. It's similar to mine:

    Here is a better picture of the first one. We have 2 Rhode Island Reds also, but since I knew what they were, I didn't post them. This one is a bantam, as well as the other two I posted pictures of. It's markings are beautiful!

    I think that is a Rhode island.

    So, I have another breed question. We got 12 chicks from our county co-op. They wrote on the boxes what they gave us. Sort of. It said 2 RIR, 2 gold sex link pullets, 3 bantams, 5 buff..... Now, I'm totally new to this, so I'm clueless, but I've been trying to search out what all we have. The first two are obvious. The bantams I've already posted. So my next silly question is how in the world are we supposed to find out what the "buffs" are. They just look like standard, Easter-picture-taking-yellowish chicks...??

    I'm pretty sure they'll be buff Orpingtons. If they have pinkish/white legs instead of yellow, that's your bird.

    I'm desperately trying to post a picture, but it's not cooperating. [​IMG]
