    Please take a look at these 4 brown 4 day old chicks. They are all supposed to be pullets. I think that two are Ameraucanas and two are Brown Leghorns. Based on the catalog photos of chicks, the two with bold sparrow stripes across their eyes are brown leghorns. The other two chicks (lowest 2 in photo) look very different. One has the leghorn's sparrow markings except for a pale face. The other (lower left) has the general color scheme, but it is all blurred.

    Is this a normal color variation?
