    I went to TSC just to peak at the peeps and guess what? I walk out with a half a dozen.

    The high school girl working didn't know what breed they were, but I was fearless, for I knew some one here could tell me. Here's the pics:

    Pardon my lack of photography skills. These girls came from a tub of mixed pullets.

    The bottom one looks like a black australorp, the middle front one looks like a speckled sussex. [​IMG]

    I had figured the black ones were Austrolorps, but I wasn't 100% sure. I am glad to have a confirmation. The other two I am about clueless on.

    Thank you.

    Pic two looks like a Partridge rock to me. Is the first one all white? If so I say a white rock or Leghorn?

    Here is my guess (worth less than 2 cents! *smile*)

    1) buff orp
    2) easter eggers
    3) cuckoo marans

    Wingnut, I thought buff orp on #1. but I am not that good at figuring these things out (Chick #1 is very yellow except for a splash of white on her chest)

    I would love the chicks in #2 to be EE's!!! I have three right now who lay green eggs that range from medium green to olive. I'd love to get some blue or (gasp!) pink!

    I really think #3 is an austrolorp, which would be very cool, too. Right now my best layer is a BA. A cuckoo maran would also be awesome.
