    From MM - can be any of the heavy brown egg layers OR a free rare chick...guesses?

    One is a light chipmunk, one is a darker, reddish chipmunk with facial markings like a Wyandotte.

    <<Sorry about fuzzy pics - camera hates low light>>

    The last pic looks like a GLW to me. I have one of those--looks like my Vada did.

    Still having 'discussions' with my camera, playing with the settings. The red light is messing with it on the lighter chicks.

    That does look a lot like my MM golden-laced wyandotte baby did. I bet you're right. I hope it turns out as beautiful as mine did. She's my biggest, prettiest girl!

    The other, I'm not sure about. Maybe it's your rare baby, and it's an EE? It doesn't look like my McMurray RIR's did. They had no chipmunk striping at all.

    Well the light chipmunk is being lost to shipping stress...it'll probably be gone in the first part of today.[​IMG]

    Sorry about the light chick. The dark chick could go lace wing or partridge, since partridge will bar on wings early.

    The light colored 1 looks like some Sicillian buttercup chicks I had but I'm not 100% sure that is what it is.[​IMG]
