    Please help me ID these chicks from Meyers Rare Assortment. The gray has dark legs with pink feet and black beak. The golden and reddish one has yellow legs and feet.

    I am not sure about the gray one however, the second one looks like a Rhode Island Red to me. Beautiful chicks! They are soooo cute!

    The first chick could be a Lavender Orphingtin.
    I think the second chick is a Rhode Island Red.

    I don’t think a RIR would be in a rare breed batch. The feathers coming in are grey lavender looking and mine looks more golden read in the head for quiet some time before she got her big girls feathers as I am new they both have me stumped but I know they aren’t anything like what I have BO,BR,RIR, EE, Cinnamon Queen, SS, Barnies. So none of those from what I have and what I’ve looked at when researching everyone of those breeds.

    You are right! Sorry, I somehow missed the part about them being in a rare breed batch. RIR are pretty common.

    I was leaning toward lavendar
    I was thinking Lavender Orpington for second chick because they don’t have black beak and the have yellow festering on chest and grey wings back etc.
