    Thanks, they were bought at a swap meet last night, and I think I might have 2 non-chickens as well. For a $1, I guess I can wait for the surprise if no one can tell me. LOL

    The bottom pic looks a little like the Turkeys our feed store had in a while back. They had those same greyish stripes on the heads.

    chicks look a bit early to tell - altho the first one's legs sure look greenish (possible ee?) the last is a guinea - lavender or coral blue [​IMG]

    What a cutie Guinea! The first EE is too young to really say much about, other than it being cute. The second one is possibly an EE too, from the look of the willow legs on it. Does it have poofy cheeks when seen from the front?

    I'm n expert but the coloring on the top one looks like too much contrast to be an EE. The one I just got has coloring more like a chipmunk and no sharp contrast in the wing area like yours. I could be completely wrong tho, too...
