    I have one each of the following breeds but I can't quite figure out all of the "who's who?"! I'd appreciate a little help getting this right. [​IMG]

    Uncertain which is which:
    Easter Egger
    Speckled Sussex
    Welsummer

    Fairly certain which is which:
    Silver Penciled Rock
    Silver Gray Dorking


    Chick A: is bigger than other "chipmunk" ones

    Silver Penciled Rock??? She has the tiniest wings of all and a slight dusty gray-brown coloring.

    All those chicks are going to be very difficult to tell apart at this point. Chick A is definitely an Easter Egger with that pea comb. The difference between the Silver Dorking and the Silver Penciled Rock will be that the Dorking has 5 toes. The main difference between the Speckled Sussex and the Welsummer at this point is the skin color. Sussex have white skin, Welsummers have yellow, but your chicks might be just a bit young to easily tell.

    Thanks so much! I'm so glad its not just me that can't easily tell the difference between some of them yet! :p

    I'll double check the toes but I'm 99% sure i have the silver gray dorking correct, and so glad to have the easter egger identified, she is so big and so gorgeous!

    Thanks again!
