    I purchased several chicks from a hatchery. Some for me and some for two other guys. Question is how do I tell which breeds are what. The three of us got a few of the same breeds,but also purchased breeds individually. Any links to chick photos of different breeds?
    Thanks

    You can got to feathersite.com and compare chick pics of the chicks you got or you can post pictures on this site, down in the gender/breed area and some people could put in their guesses to which is which. Congrats on the chicks & [​IMG]

    Well you can check out various hatcheries(personally I prefer MPC) and look at pics of chicks ([​IMG]) or you can post pics of them here and see what we all think!
