    Hi,
    I just joined, and am the new owner of 14 chicks. We split an order with a friend, and now realize that we have three breeds that are pretty similar. I have been reading about leg color and combs. The dominiques and marans are mine, and the barred rocks are our friend's. He would like to take his chicks home in the next week or so, and we hope to correctly identify them all.


    Mainly, we want to make sure that he gets his barred rocks. Any advice??? Thanks.

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! X3 on post good pictures of them in the What Breed/Gender forum, as you said heads/combs and feet should help tell them apart. The BR and Doms have different combs (single and rose), and the Marans should have white/pink on their legs, the other two yellow.
