    The first one in pic #1 is a Light Brahma, does #2 have feathered legs? And in picture #3 the black chick with the spot on it's head is a Barred Rock, and those goldenish chicks look like Brown Sexlinks or Production Reds.

    yes number 2 does have feathered legs and his feathers that have come in so far sort of flip out.
     
  4. what color are the legs on the white and red/gold ones?? The mostly white ones..I should say.

    You've got one Rhode Island Red, one Barred Rock, 3 Red Star (red sex-link), an Australorp, and I don't know what the rest are.
     
  7. Jersey is right...

    I'll add that I think he is leaning towards Marans for # 2 which I would agree with.

    The only question I had was on the mostly white with a little red. If they have green legs, then they are easter eggers....If yellow legs then they are a production red sex link (probably the variety of a NHR roo over a white rock hen)
