    1. Buff Orpingtons-2 males and 1 female;almost positive on this one
    2. not sure what it is but I am fairly sure it is a female
    3. Black Austrolrop-purely a guess; at least 1 is a male
    4. Rhode Island Reds-2 or 3 females, 2 or 3 males; pretty certain on breed; fairly certain on sexes

    The buff color chicks do have whitish/light pinkish legs. What's the difference between the buff orph and the buff rock. (I have been looking in McMurry magazine to try and figure these chicks out). The one you say looks like a wellsummer is small/petite compared to the rest. I was thinking the red chicks were RIR but they have cream color patches on their head. I have no clue to the black and white chicks identity.[​IMG]

    OK the second pic if she is smaller it is probably because she is a lt brown leghorn and they dont get too big
    The Orps have white legs and yes thewy are orps.

    The black ones I noticed 1 has yellow legs and one has black legs. I am pretty sure the yellow legged one is a male. That would also mean they are 2 dif. breeds if they have dif leg colors
