Here are some pics from my 3rd Sunday with the americanas, I think 1 of the 9 americanas is actually a bantam of some kind They were in the same enclosure at TSC when I bought them. Also added 5 Rhode Island Red Pullets I think they are about a week younger than the others

Very cute chicks! All the babies with green legs are Easter Eggers, and you have a nice mix of colors. They can be a little difficult to sex, because of their little combs. Keep posting pictures as the weeks go by!
The smaller 'chipmonk colored' chick with the pink/white legs I'm not sure about. What other breeds did the store claim to have?

Glad you're here !

A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/suggestions-for-a-first-aid-kit.1150128/)
It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...-there-and-cut-more-holes-in-your-coop.47774/) Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!

One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/seed-swap.1220129/)

They sure are cuties!! Remember to take LOTS of pictures! You’ll love to look back on them when they’re mature. Currently we only have 2 chicks right now. They’re each about 3 weeks old. One is a Crested Polish, who is a future rooster, and the other is a silver laced Wyandotte, a future hen.

And for the record, these babies are still living in their brooder, they were just brought outside for a little bit. Their names are Gregory and Sylvie. Anyways, have fun with those chicks! Cherish the time when they’re little fluff muffins!!

Pictures are hard! I'm seeing green legs, is it the photo? RIRs have yellow legs, and have you figured out who the little chick is?
Mary
It is the lighting in the pics, if you look at pic 13 chick in the front far right has yellow legs and that is 1 of the 5 RIR. As far as the small black one. It is same age as the bigger ones I am thinking a bantam was given to me by mistake.
