    I have a couple of Pictures of our chicks that we don't know what they are-- we have been searching but still there are not many pictures of babes inbetween stages. Would love the help. this picture is of Susie I have another marked the same way.
    this next picture is of our newest babes- the ones that are marked like chipmunks- we have not idea what they are. Some are a real black in the stripes and some are a lighter brown. Does anyone know these? I gave a second pic of a little closer.
    Ok here is one more. This little guy I call Fred- we have a hen we call Wilma- But I don't know what they are.
    The older chickens (Susie, Fred&Wilma)we got from an individual. the others we ordered.
    We would really appreciate the help. This is our first year raising chickens.
    Now we have 26- 7 day old chicks: 7- 7 week old babes: 21-9 week old babe's: 4-12 week old Pekin Ducks: 3 Golden Ret's: 2- girls live home: 3 older boys- 2 married-1 next yr.: and our grandson...
    oh yeah Hubby and me.. too.

    The little black chicks with the white on the head look to be Barred Rocks
    You have a necked neck , and it looks like you have some with a top knot that could be polish if I'm seeing them right.
    Your little brown striped ones, could be a few different breeds I'm putting brown leghorn out there.
    You first one has green legs I thinking its a mix breed of maybe Easter Egger type. I don't have a clue of what Fred maybe.
    They look good and healthy better get ready you' ll be wanting more. I started out with 6 I have 98 now.

    Thanks, The white one-Susie, with the colored legs I thought it maybe EE chick cause of the colored legs. The little ones that are marked like chipmunks I was hoping for some kind of rocks.... Fred-- I still am looking to see what him and wilma are... I didn't add a picture of Wilma but she is just like Fred with no neck dark feathers like the roo. the toppers are the polish babies.
    I think I'm staying right here with the ones I have....
    My husband said that the chipmunk ones look like the EE chicks -- going by the baby pics from the poultry web sites. Thanks again but I think the 54 I have with the ducks are enough for now... we have run out of space.
    Thanks again--Dot

    first one i'd say easter egger

    last one looks like a buff brahma if that is a rose comb not a single comb.

    babies the naked necks r turkens look like white or buff i'd guess white though.

    black chicks with yellow dots look like barred rocks.

    stripped ones r either silver duckwing or golden duckwing can't tell from the pic and either pheonix or old english games, if gray legs could be easter eggers. they also kinda look like welsummers so that's another possability.

    really yellow ones, no clue can't see them enough.
    hope that helps,
