    That first one looks like a little roo, cochin maybe, because of the feathered feet.

    #1 looks like a white cochin at this point. #2, not sure. #3 could be an EE, but also might be a black-breasted red Game.

    I think the third one might be an EE, not sure yet... Post some more pics in a week or so! [​IMG]

    Thanks for sharing! They're adorable!

    Thank you all for getting back to me. I am so excited. I was to pick up Barred Rocks but they had sold them all. So I got some marked Batman. I was thinking it was a type. But looks like it was more the size of the chicken. oops. You live you learn.
    So all 4 of my new brood (That is what the group is called right?) made it through the night. So one day closer to eggs. But thank you again for all your guesses. We will see who gets it right in a few weeks.

    'Batman'? Think you probably mean 'bantam' [​IMG] I would say the 2nd one is a RIR. The first is probably a cochin, although mine are all black or blue, so it looks a little different [​IMG] As for the third, I really don't know. Hope you figure it out! though in my opinion, I think mixed breed anythings are more fun! It's always 'eggs'citing to see what you end up with!

    LOL yeah my chicks are not part batman:(
    But i almost feel out from the 'eggs'citing. That was just to cute.

    Do any of you have a RIR? are they nice? I do not want my 1st chicken to kick my butt.
    Thank you again for all your help. This is a whole new world. I have 2 weeks before they might be outside. I have to come up with a coop fast.
