    We are new to chicken raising. Someone gave us these 4 week-old chicks. Any help determining their breeds will be helpful. I'm pretty sure that the small brown one is a Speckled Sussex, and there are some Polish as well. Thanks.

    Can't tell you what they are, but I wanted to say that you might want to get the newspaper out of there... It's slippery for them to walk on and can cause a condition called Spraddle Leg. They sure are cute!

    You have some white crested black polish and I think a silver spangled hamburg. Then again the more I look at them you have have a bunch of EE's. But the ones with the poofs on thier heads are W/C Black polish.

    Good Luck and re-post photos in another month.
