    What might the top yellow and black chicks be? My first time seeing this sight nearly sent me into shock, it seems this turned out to be a sun bather. My babies at 3-4 days - bottom and at 5 weeks above. I am still not quite sure which breed many of them are, still learning.

    that photo just about put me in shock also. I thought, why post a photo of a dead bird (some do).? Chickens really chill out when they dust bathe

    Hello,
    Thanks so much for the reply, I do appreciate your input. I did not order leghorns, however I have listed 2 free exotics. I ordered - anconas, black jersey giants, new hampshires, columbian and silver laced wyandottes, speckled sussex, barred, buff and partridge rocks, black australorps,and araucana/ ameracanas. So far we have been able to identify both wyandotte breeeds, speckled sussex, all rocks and new hampshires. Have a pretty good idea which of the blacks might be jerseys and australorps, though we're not sure at 5 weeks. This leaves the yellow and black chick which I believe to be anconas, as does another byc member. This leaves me with 3 chicks unidentified. 2 of which have feathers growing on thier legs, quite different from all others. We searched and think they may be some type of brahma, however this would give me 3 exotics not ordered. I am 1 buff rock short so maybe by chance the threw in a third exotic. It has quite a large comb on it head, maybe a rooster, is similar to the feather legged chick, but no fethered legs. I t is much taller than any of the chicks and quite stands out on sight. I will try to upload a photo of the 3 odd chicks we have not been able to identify.

    Thanks Again
