    Since being new to the chicks. I have raised these chicks from day 1 and do not know what breed they are. I bought them from a hatchery as an assortment. I did not receive anything stating any clue as to what they might be. Is there a site where I can look at pictures and compare them to determine their breeds? If so, can someone provide it for me? I would appreciate it.

    The easiest thing to do is to check the hatchery's website. That way you have an idea what breeds they offer, so you don't go on some wild goose chase on a breed the hatchery doesn't even offer! The websites usually have pictures of chicks and/or adult birds of their different breeds. OR, post picture here and we'll give our guesses!

    An even easier solution is to post pics of them here. [​IMG] There's a lot of really good chick experts on BYC who can tell you the breed just by looking at a photo of the chick.
