    My order from My Pet Chicken arrived this afternoon. I ordered seven chicks total: 1 Blue Andalusian, 1 Australorp, 1 Sussex, 1 Welsummer, 1 Delaware, and 2 Easter Eggers.

    I can tell which are the Delaware (yellow with tan spot on head), Andalusian (light gray), Australorp (black with yellow tummy), Sussex (fluffy brown), but I don't know what the pure yellow one is nor can I tell for sure that I have 2 Easter Eggers or if one of the brown ones is a Welsummer. I approved a replacement in my order, if necessary.

    Pictures!

    I can't help much but I have 18 3 week olds in the brooder now and my Sussex look like the 2 with the dark stripe down the back. I've always had Rhode Island Reds but now I have 5 Golden laced Wyandottes, 5 Speckled Sussex and 8 RIR's. Coop should be finished soon!!!

    The Welsummer will have a well defined dark-stripe with very light brown (almost whitish) stripes along it. They also have well-defined eye-liner. The chipmunk chick alone in pic 4 & to the left/bottom of the 2 chipmunks in pic 5 looks like a Welsummer. EE can be chipmunks or yellow or brown or most any other color as chicks. Look for puffy cheeks. Their legs should take on more of a greenish tint as they get older.
