    This group of chicks is what happens when you take kids with you TSC. I know two of them are Easter eggers, but the rest I'm slightly clueless. I bought them 2 weeks ago Saturday, guessing they are between 2-3 weeks old.
    Larger EE. Named stripes. His feet are light brown like the second pic shows.(couldn't figure out the flash)

    This is Tiny Terror, it is very mean and thinks it's the boss. It was the smallest of the group but is now larger then the EE even though this one is supposed to be a bantam. It lost all the feathers off his butt about a week ago and there are very thick ones growing in now. it is feather footed.

    Smaller EE named Dot Bell. No clue why. Light orange/yellow feet. Very small, does not appear to have to grown much in 2 weeks.

    This is Count Chick ula? like Count Dracula. It's feet are dark yellow with black patches. White spot on it's head and neck as well as under wings. This little one is very nice and like to fall asleep in my hands.

    This one is kind of in it's ugly stage at the moment. It's loosing it's feathers in small patches and growing in grown up ones. His name is Squawk. He gets very vocal when not happy. Loudest of all the chicks. It's comb is showing a dark yellow. His beak and feel are dark yellow with black patches, it is feather footed (trimmed them)

    Sorry about the background, I swear he is wearing shorts.

    This is knife beak, he has a very large pink comb compared to the others. It is also the largest of all the birds even though they were all close to the same size when we got them. This bird is very brave and tries to fly alot. It hates me but snuggles with my son. Has pattern similar to the EE but it's head and shoulders are turning a maroon color. Also loosing the feathers and getting in new.

    Just picked these last 2 up yesterday from someone in Jacksonville, NC One is a sizzle, the other a frizzle. They are both very friendly and like to be snuggled. They are 3 weeks old and are the smallest of them all. Just by a bit though. The bigger bird named Tiny Terror is trying to boss the white one around and pulls at his long wing feathers. I may end up separating a few of the larger ones out into a larger bin. Opinions? I'll try to get a pic of a few together to compare sizes.

    Your feather legged birds look to be cochins, from what I can see they have straight combs. If they have pea combs, then they're likely brahmas.

    The black chick with the white spot on the head is a barred rock (hopefully) or a black sex link male (bummer). Really can't tell which yet.

    Really too young to tell genders yet. Post again around 6 weeks.
