    ok, i'm new to the chicken thing, and have no clue what I have....i've searched online...but figured i'd get better opinions on here...

    1. [​IMG]
    this one has fluffy feathers right around her face, but her tail curls down, almost like a rooster...no clue what shes gonna turn out to be

    2. [​IMG]
    this one is black all over....not too many traits that make her stand out, other than coloe

    3. [​IMG]
    I think this is a brownleg? but i need to make sure...i have 3 of these....

    4. [​IMG]
    she is the only one that has feathers on her feet....

    5. [​IMG]
    this one almost has the same colors as #1, but the tail doesn't curl down, and this ones face is a bit more poofy...and shes the biggest chick i've got...shes gonna be a big girl! lol

    OK...ANY HELP would be greatly appreciated.

    THANKS [​IMG]

    bc i want to be able to sell the eggs or chicks, and selling them w/ out knowing anything about them seems wrong. I was to be educated about them, thats all.

    thanks so much for your help [​IMG]

    1 & 5 - EE's #5's tail, hackles, and even the comb a bit - look awful rooish. [​IMG] but - I dunno.
    2. Australop - does she have white spots? To me it looks like the reflection of the flash of the camera off some underlaying lacing under the black.
    3. Brown Leghorn
    4. Looks more Buff Brahma - but may be buff cochin - the black in the tail coming in and the FACE makes me think brahma over cochin.


    Edited to add : By the assortment i must ask : Are these hatchery birds? or from a feed store like Tractor Supply???

    thank you all so much!

    and the blackie...i'll have to go check her out today and see about the white lacing under the black...it might have been the camera.
