    a whole bunch of chick breeds look like #3

    what are the choices?


    I THINK partridge rocks, partridge Wyandottes, Welsummers, some drk brown leghorns, and Speckled Sussex. Among other breeds, just not sure. Where did you get them? Mc Murray?

    I think the brahmas are buff brahmas, they are very nice!!!!

    Thanks we are in love to say the least.
    The babies came from Mcmurray and they are part of the brown egg layers bargain. I think the brahmas were extras they threw in though, here is the list of chicks that could be in the bunch

    Black Australorps; Lt. Brahmas; Dark Cornish; Black and White Giants; Buff and White Orpingtons; New Hampshire, Rhode Island Reds, Barred, White, Partridge, Buff Rocks;Deleware, Sussex, Turkens; White, Silver Laced, & Columbian Wyandottes, Red Star and Black Star.

    THANKS!!

    I love buff brahmas

    #3 could be dark Cornish, Partridge Rock, or Speckled Sussex

    Hoping its a Sussex, but Rocks are nice too. Actually Cornish look different but are pretty nice too. Supposed to be good mothers. [​IMG]

    Good Luck

    I agree with the Brahmas. The last one looks like mine that ended up being Dark Cornish. Also from MM.
    Here she is at 2 weeks.

    #3 is about as fuzzy as everyone else, though the 2 lil blue ones are VERY FUZZY.

    Thanks for the replies everyone, Im hoping the extra's turn out to be hens, I would hate to get attached and have to get rid of them
