    I posted pics of my chicks a couple of weeks ago. I was told 1 was a B.O., 3 were EEs and 2 were RIRs. Is that what I have? These are new pics I told a few minutes ago.

    I see 3 EE's and 1 red sexlink for sure. The other 2 buff ones in the back I don't know.

    2 Buff Orps, 1 Red Sex Link, 1 Golden Campine or Buttercup (what kind of comb does it have and I can tell you which one it is), if the other 2 had puffy cheeks as chicks - then EE's.

    The black and reddish brown barred one with reddish brown head looks like two of my EEs (the wings do but now I have a good idea how their heads will probably feather out).

    Here's my buttercup showing her comb when she was young. Campines have single combs.
