    Hey all, I'm new here and new to the chicken game! I posted this in the chick section, someone suggested I try here. My mom and I just got six chicks today, but we're not sure what kind exactly. Some others have suggested the one on the right in the bottom pic is an easter egg. The one on the left bottom, we saw an adult one of that and they have unique, almost spikey feathers, can't remember what she called them. Here are some pics.

    Welcome to BYC Bleu. It's good to have you!

    Your light brown chick with the chipmunk stripe is most likely your Easter Egger. The blacks with white spots on their heads, Barred Rocks. If the other 2 have 'spikey' feathers, I'm leaning towards Frizzled something or other. I've never owned any, I think they're hideous. LOL

    Again, welcome and congrats on the new chicks! [​IMG]

    Thanks, Sterling! Ah, yes, Frizzled, that sounds right. That one is my fave!!! Poor chick, I won't tell her what you said [​IMG]

    Also, the lady thought they were around 1 1/2-2 weeks old, does that seem correct?

    Quote:That sounds right. Usually at about 2 weeks they have most of their wing feathers, so 1 1/2 to 2 sounds right.
