    I bought these 3 ckicks from our local tractor supply store. They were in a bin labeled Buff Orpingtons which were white, Barred Rocks which were black and Ameracaunas which were chipmunk striped. I thought I was getting the white BO but now 2 of them have green feet so I'm not sure what they are.

    These are the best picks I could get of them.

    The 2 with green legs are probably EE's, BO will have pale pink, almost whitish legs.

    Your green legged babies also both look to have muffs, so I'm going with easter eggers. Some ee come in a pale gold lightening to white on the tail, I'll bet that's what your lighter chick will look like. Hatchery "ameracauana" are non-standard, so they can come in many different colors, they can mimic other chicks.

    Thanks I appreciate you guys taking a look for me. I didn't think of EEs because I didn't know they or the ameracaunas could be light colored. EEs are fine for me as I was just trying to add a couple of pullets who would go broody for me in the spring. Thanks again!
