    I have a new flock of 80 chicks that are now 4 and 5 weeks old. Can anyone help me identify. I ordered some RIR's, Austroloups, campines, Delawares, and rainbow layer assortment. Pictures are not the best but the chickens did not want to cooperate. This is just a few of my brood!

    I'm absolutely no help, but I couldn't help but to say what a lovely assortment of birds! They're all beautiful! Ok, now maybe someone who actually knows something will chime in. [​IMG]:

    Thanks Mohonri, I had wondered if #1 was ancona but your guess is a possibility I had not considered. I had hoped #3 was a cochin but thought it might have been a brahma. I had also picked the campine, ee, and wasn't sure about the red. I had ordered 20 RIR's but thought this one was a little light. I do hope the other is a partridge rock. Thanks again.

    My guess is that #3 is a Light Brahma.
    Great assortment!

    Number one is not an ancona. I have two ancona roos and bird in your picture is already as big as my full grown boys. Plus the body type and coloring does not look right.

    OK, my guess is:
    #3 Lt Brahma
    #4 BO
    #7 RIR
    Not sure of the others.
