    Gather round and identify my chicks! I stopped at TSC today and they had just gotten in a chick shipment. They had Silkies, which I’ve been watching for, so I got three - and they had a bunch of chicks that were unmarked in a bin from a previous shipment so I got two

    I think they are either Welsummers or Light Brown Leghorns. They are probably 4-7 days old and some had much longer wing feathers than others. The chicks I picked were the longer wing variety, with dark, distinct eyeliner (I’m hoping I played the odds correctly!).

    Here they are:

    Chick #1

    Chick #2
    3400BA5D-B75D-4591-AA8C-FC9A56E5A1A1.jpeg 7AA98C63-410B-497C-9111-0734B5890CD5.jpeg A20F92AA-3510-4777-9815-B347052781D1.jpeg

    Other possibilities: Speckled Sussex, though one associate said she thought they were only special order. Easter Egger, though I can’t discern any muffs and legs are yellow. I think I’ve seen Rhodebars can be this color? Or maybe something I haven’t thought of!

    What say ye, BYC?

    Way too many possibilities to even try and guess at this point. You'll just have to wait till they are feathered in and more defining traits develop.

    I just got 2 Speckled Sussex from TSC. One of them is the guy all alone in the pic. Looks alot like yours but its a pretty common pattern till later on in their life!
