    I was able to get 13 new chickens today. 3 of them I am pretty sure are Buff Orpingtons, the others I have no idea. Can you please help. The woman that we got them from said they are about 4 weeks old this week. She doesn't know what they are.

    You can click on the pictures of #4-#12 to see larger pictures.

    #1-#3 I am pretty sure they are buff orps

    #4 (Think maybe a leghorn or a white rock)

    #5 (Also think a leghorn or white rock)

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    I'll post pictures when they get older and have feathered out.

    8-12 are, I believe, EEs.

    Quote:That is what I was thinking. The 13th looks just like them.

    # 12 is the only possible EE I see in the bunch, you can tell by the fluffy cheeks! The others do not exhibit this trait. #10 appears to be a cochin or brahma, what type of comb does it have? Single comb is a cochin and rose comb would be brahma. The little buff chickies look very much like buff orpingtons. Just because a chick has brown stripes does not mean its an EE!!!! Tons of breeds look like chipmunks! I ordered a bunch of EE chicks and they came in every color under the sun from blue, red, splash, white, etc. The best way to tell them apart is the fluffy cheeks that indicate a muff.

    I see muffs on more than just #12, as well as green legs on several that also indicate them being EEs. Not all EEs even have muffs. Does #10 have feathered legs? It's hard to tell in the picture but it doesn't look to have the right leg coloring for a brahma or a cochin.

    ETA: I wasn't basing my guess of them being EEs on just their coloring but rather their overall look.

    Quote:Green legs? I can't even see the legs in the majority of the pictures, the only one who is showing leg is #10 who is so completely feathered it is difficult to see any skin except for a yellowish toe!!!
