    First off I'd like to say that backyardchickens.com rules! Great information and knowledge base.

    Here are 2 baby chicks I'm having a problem identifying.

    The place I purchased them from said they had, Ameraucana, buff orphington, rhoad island reds, and Brahma. These guys are 1 week old by the way. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    The yellow chick looks like my buff orpingtons.

    And the other one looks like it might be an Easter Egger. Looking at those light legs, it might be an Orpington cross.
