    We just picked up two chicks to add to our current flock of 5. One is a barred rock and we are not sure what the other one is. They are just getting tail feathers. They are currently at a friends house who also got chicks from the same place and I just want to hold them.

    Any ideas on the mystery breed and if we are looking at girls or not?

    I saw that some people could tell barred rock sex early on. Is this to early?

    I unfortunately did not get any more of the brown chick.

    What color legs does it have? The chipmunk striping on the back and the feathering so far make me think it could be an Easter Egger. However, I can't tell for sure. Could you post a picture of just it, standing up?

    I will try to get some better pictures tonight. The mystery one has very dark golden brown colors.

    We got them the 5th, (first picture) how old would you guess them to be?

    The problem is, there are several different breeds that start out as chipmunk chicks. I'm thinking she'll be something partridge looking as an adult, but you'll probably have to wait until around 6-8 weeks to know for sure what it is.

    I wish that I had more pictures of the brown chick but wouldn't cooperate. I absolutely love the white tips on the black one.
