    I bought 5 chicks from a lady who had 4 rubbermaid bins full of them in her kitchen. She said she got them from Privet.

    She took them from the bins that were labeled and wrote down hatch dates and types of chicks. But now that they are getting more wing feathers i am not sure I got what she said they are. I don't intend on breeding them but Id like to know what they are.

    What I was told I got:
    Black Astralorp
    Rhode Island Red
    Barred Rock
    Red Sex Link
    Buff Orphington

    The two black ones are both getting white feathers, and the one that was red is not getting red feathers. Also, the one I think is the buff orphington its wing feathers are thin in the middle. Would you please tell me what you think?

    Chick 1 (looks just like a little tennis ball)

    Chick 2

    Chick 2's wings (a week older than the others but seems behind the rest in wing development)

    Chick 3 (Way smaller than the others)

    Chick 4 front

    Chick 4 wings

    Chick 5 front

    Chick 5 wings

    And the freebie Barred rock rooster i think

    Here are my chicks, they are now 6 days old, I took these when they were just 3 days old.
    My Rhode Island Red

    My buff Orpingtons

    My Black Australorps. White on chins, belly, neck, and more white than the Barred Rocks have on wings (think penguin). Black on legs too.

    My Barred Rocks. White on top of heads, little white on wings, little white on butts.
