    Hello! So our family recently moved to the countryside and decided to get some chickens. We have four chicks right now, (hatched them from the egg, planning on getting more later for a second coop) and they are all 3 weeks old today. We think we have an Americauna (fluffy cheeks, blue egg), a light Brahma (tan wing feathers, feathered feet, toe number abnormal), and a Barred Rock chick (white dot on head, started to show barred rock-esque feathers), but there's one chick we can't identify. Initially, we thought it was an Australorp, but it's got wing feathers that are more medium brown than black. Nothing we found said Australorp chicks can be a light brown, so we haven't been able to make any more progress in the identification. The markings are still similar- rings around the eyes, a white chest, lighter around the "elbow" portion of the wings. We just can't figure out what breed it is, and there doesn't seem to be that much extensive information on identifying chicks that we've been able to find. Our guesses at the other chicks are, well, guesses, so if you happen to recognize them as a different breed than what we've put, that would be greatly appreciated! Our mystery guy is in pictures 11-15.

    The one with the five toes and tan wings is a salmon faverolle. The one from the blue egg is a blue ameraucana. Can we see a comb pic of the alleged barred rock, with its yellow legs it could also be a Dominique or maybe even an SLW. Your last chick may be an andulasian, not entirely sure. Keep an eye on it in any case, it's large combs and thick legs are making my cockerel senses ding.

    [​IMG] Here are the other 2. One yelow, one white. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Trying to identify my baby chicks. Hoping someone can help. Here is one of three with the most distinct coloring/feathering.My employee bought them on a whim and had no idea how to care for them. So I took them in. But have no idea what they are, or if it may be too early to tell still. TIA! :)

    Oh gosh okay! Thank you so much! That's extremely helpful. I'll post some stills of a video of the alleged barred rock below, he has that white spot and the beginnings of feathers that look a lot like a BR or Dom. I can also try and get some more pictures of the maybe-rooster today, we named him Pidge and he's my little sister's favorite chick, she'd be very sad to see him go if he is a rooster. Sadly we may not be able to keep him if he crows loudly because it would disturb our neighborhood.
