    Does anyone know of a link to a site with pictures of diff breeds. I got some chicks I'm unfamiliar with and want to find out what kind they are. I've gone McMurray's site and it's not listed there.

    Thanks for the link...but the list is far too long.

    If anyone has an idea of what these chickens might be, I'd go over there and check and see.

    They are medium size chickens. They are black with white specks. They have more white when they're younger but the adults have more black with white specks. They hens have large combs that flop over.

    THey are not wyandottes, hamburgs, spitzhaubens, anconas, minorcas

    Once you've narrowed it down feathersite has a great page of chick pictures. I'm a newbie with a bunch of mystery chicks and it's really helpful...

    Wish I could give you suggestions on what you have... but... "newbie"...

    I found it. They are Mottled Anconas. I had just seen the pic of the Ancona before and it looked different but the Mottled Anconas is what I have. Thanks a bunch.
