    The black and white striped ones are likely barred rocks. The yellow and brown ones are probably some sort of production bird. If they're hens, they'll be prolific layers are large brown eggs. [​IMG]

    No problem! I have a batch of barred rocks that are about two months old now, and they certainly are flighty like the one in your picture.

    Oh yeah! Be sure to take everyone's opinions into account, too. Chicks are pretty ambiguous until they're full grown, so keep an open mind. They very certainly could be any of these breeds, lol! It just helps to narrow it down. [​IMG]

    Your black and white striped one are barred rocks, and from the coloring in the last pic I think you have at least 3 males, sorry.
