    Anyone have a guess as to these 3-1/2 week olds?

    The first one is the MMH Mystery Chick.

    The ones with the black streaks by their eyes are part of the 25 Brown Egg Layer Assortment.

    The first 2 photos are of a Speckled Sussex chick, the others I have no idea. :) Hope this helps.

    Looks awfully familiar. But, does a brown leghorn qualify as a rare exotic chick?

    hdowden, I thought it might be too early to tell. I'll post updated pics in a few weeks.

    Thanks everyone for your help.

    Yes, MMM would count a Brown Leghorn as an exotic. But the others won't be brown Leghorns because all Leghorns lay white eggs.

    Right, I'm thinking the top one is the leghorn. The bottom chick I'm not sure with the yellow head, haven't seen one like that before. I'd check into the Welsummer idea.

    The dark slash behind the eye doesn't match any welsummer pics I can find. Looked on Murrays site and they don't have Welsummers.

    If the order was from Murray McMurray, the top two pics are a brown leghorn. Looks really similar to welsummer as chicks, but Murray doesn't have welsummers. I recently got an order from them with four Brown Leghorns, and they looked just like that a few weeks ago.
