    Hello. I have 25 chicks, 16 of which I will be keeping. I am having trouble telling the buff orp chicks from the delaware. Here are two pics. I suspect the delaware is the one with the gray in its wing (chick#1), but then, pictures of most delaware adult hens show totally white wings. Which do you think is the delaware, chick 1 or 2?

    I'd say #2 is the BO

    #2 is the Buff...
    Delaware's sorta have the same pattern as a Brahma...dark on their wings, tails and necks.

    OK, thanks guys. I'll want to be certain about determining my barred rock from my black australorps too, but I think they'll be easier to tell in a few more days...by around 2 weeks, as they barred should start showing more of their bars.

    #1 is positively the Delaware. One of the few chickens I had as a chick [​IMG]
