    I have no idea, but those have got to be some of the cutest pictures i have ever seen!
    Do you know if they are purebred, or are they mixes?

    maybejoey got chickenidous?

    A little bit young. Once they grow in adult feathers (1-1 1/2 months) I will be able to sex them.

    Wait are you asking what breeds they are? Or are you asking gender?
    I agree you have a white silkie there. The light chick looks a lot like my buff orps as chicks. Do i see light stripes on the back of the light one? The dark one i have no clue on yet

    1 is a golden comet or red sex link or one of the other names for that same type of chicken, i think.

    Yep, I take "stabs" at breed & final color. The three first ones came from Atwoods (ranch store) today - so I'm guessing purebreds of some sort?
    The last one can be/probably is a mutt - but color guesses are welcome [​IMG]

    The light one is mainly yellow, and the lighter spots on the back are in my estimate the same as the overall color, but the darker stripes just bring them out more. The chick has a reddish marking that goes from top of head down the back of neck and three vertical dark stripes on the back and one at their bottom horizontally.

    Oh, and they're all banties, if I didn't mention that...
