    Hey all, I'm new here and new to the chicken game! My mom and I just got six chicks today, but we're not sure what kind exactly. Here are some pics.

    The white mixed one looks like it has what we call "crunchy" feathers. I say that one looks like a Silkie mix! Does it have an 5th toe by chance? The black ones with the white topped heads could be Australorp mixes.

    I think you have an easter egger, the one with the eye markings and stripe on the back. Looks like most of our EEs did as chicks.

    Sorry, I don't have a lot of recognition experience for the others.

    The brownish-gold one that is on the right in most of the pics, with the stipe up its back/head, looks like an EE. The white one also looks like an EE. From the looks of it they all may be.

    There is a forum for the "What Breed/Gender is this" you might get a better response under that. Good Luck!

    Thanks all! I'll definitely try the guessing forum out.
