    Hey everyone,

    Been browsing the forums for a few days and decided i'd post my chicks up here. I picked up 6 bantam chicks recently in Portland, OR and they are about 4 weeks old.

    I wanted to confirm their breeds with you all and possibly sex, if anyone can tell this early.

    2 of them are buff brahmas, 2 of them are black rosecombs, and 2 are supposed to be araucanas but i'm not sure about this due to the tails.

    Your Buff Brahma is a Gold Laced Cochin, looks like. You don't have any Brahmas in there. And the first two are Easter Eggers.

    The first 2 look like EE's and yes I concure with Speckledhen, Cochins on the "Buff Brahmas"

    yeah, the buff brahma looks a little bit different.

    The easter eggers are definitely my favorite. They have the most personality and love to be held. Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed that they aren't roos.

    Thanks everyone, a noob appreciates it [​IMG] Time to do a little research on the different breeds [​IMG]
