    The Atlanta Meet Up Chicken group gave away over 1000 chicks today - I took these 3 home and am not sure of their breeds. Please help me figure it out! They are from well known hatcheries and all should be large fowl. Thanks!

    Chick 2 (Has Lightly Feathered Feet)

    Chick 3 (I am guessing this is an EE because of the cheeks?)

    All 3 together:

    Hi! You took great photos! I love the one of your cat & chick and the one of the chicks together. I'm not sure what the first two are and I agree the third could be an EE. Your chicks are adorable, BTW. [​IMG]

    I am thinking the first one is a Columbian Wyandotte. Don't know on the second. I agree on the third being an EE maybe.
    Good luck.

    I did some searching to see if I could find what breeds you may have. These are just guesses. I hope this helps some! [​IMG]

    For the black/yellow chick:
    Black Australorp
    Jersey Giant
    Exchequer Leghorn

    For the black/white feather-legged chick:
    Maran

    The first one looks to be an Ancona or Exchequer Leghorn. There's just not enough black for an Australorp or Jersey Giant. The second could be a very poorly feathered Cochin or a feather legged Marans. The third does look like an EE.

    You are right. I put Australorp there because maybe if it was one it had poor markings. (I don't know if chicks can have poor markings though?) I didn't even think of Ancona. So, I change my guesses on the 1st chick to be Ancona or E. Leghorn. [​IMG]
