    I'm new here and I recently got 6 chickens:
    2 aracuanas
    2 Rhode Island reds
    2 from the "assorted" section

    Quick info about me:
    I've never had chickens before and need some good tips
    I'm from Nevada
    I'm still in high school :p

    My question is if anyone can help me figure out what breeds my 2 assorted chicks are

    I tried uploading a picture and it didn't work so I'm going to send this message first and then the pictures!

    This is yellow (turning white) one from the assorted section who has a longer neck and longer legs than the others

    This one is black with white spots on it and I'm really curious what breed it is (let me know if you guys need better pics)

    It's not possible for me to guess - the red lighting obscures the real colors. The blurry one is no help either. You can also post clear photos at "what breed or gender is this."
    but before 6-8 weeks of age, most of what is seen is just color . Many breeds start with the same colors, like chipmunk pattern etc .

    I did post them on what breed section and got some answers, I try to get good photos but they love to move right before I take pics. I know most look the same but their new feathers were starting to grow in and made them look diff then each other so I figured it would help, looks like the black one may be a barred rock and the yellow that's turning white may be leghorn or white rock but we will see in time :D
