    I posted these chicks last month, now they are 4.5 weeks old. They were mistakenly sent to me by Welp. Can anyone tell from these pictures, I know they aren't the best. I looked on feathersite http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGA/Arau/BRKArauChik.html and am wondering if the grey ones are Araucanas? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The other 2 look very similar, black with brown collars. But the birds with more light brown faces have yellow legs. While the others have slate legs. The slate legs I am thinking again Araucanas. But not sure on the other, Partridge Rock? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks for all opinions!

    I actually don't think any of them are Araucana/Ameraucana/EE. I think the top two are Blue Orpington or some other Blue, single combed, clean legged, large fowl bird. The second ones may be Gold Laced Wyandottes.

    the top may be blue andalusian?
    I have no idea of the bottom ones

    They are not araucana though (or EE's) as they all have single combs and don't have beards/muffs

    I don't know about Andalusians, the chicks don't look at all like mine did. And mine have slate legs, looks like they have yellow?
    Guess I will have to wait until they get a little bigger.

    BLue andalusians are the only Blue breed Welp has ! So unless they are some kind of sport or a breed they dont have listed they are Andalusians [​IMG]

    They could very well be from a hatchery quality (not entirely pure) Black breed. Since it is impossible to tell from looking if a Black bird had a parent or grandparent that was Blue, and they could still produce Blue chicks.

    Someone else suggested Dominiques, and my chicks do look more like that. But they are not feathering out barred. I was wondering if they could be "mutts".

    Dominique Chicks are black . If they were mutts i would doubt they would look alike , Like yours do . My vote is for Blue andalusian .
