    We went to the feed store today and got 5 more chicks were pretty sure of 3 of the 5 but the other 2 were not so sure about. Any help?

    The one ontop of the food and the one that looks like it we need help on.

    You might want to get a chick waterer. I can't tell how deep that bowl is, but the can drown in a bowl. And also, if they fall in and get back out, they can get a chill, which is also not good.

    oooh the bowl isnt deep at all at best if they hop in it goes to thier legs and we dont fill it to the top, and The black ones are Australorps right?...because if so the lady at our feed store was wrong again.... last time she said they were barred rock and they turned out to be Australorps, but we didnt mind that much. This time she said they were Wyandottes and i was really hopping they were and now I think we got Australorps AGAIN. lol

    I don't think they are BA, because they wing tips are feathering out white. And BA will feather out all black. They are more likely Wyandottes than BA, but could be some other breed, if your feedstore doesn't know what they have. Here are pictures of SLW

    Time will tell.
