    Hi! I am very new to chickens. My husband has had them in the past but this year is my first chicken experience! We just got 25 day old chicks as a pullet assortment from our local hatchery (Townline) two and a half weeks ago. I'm still trying to figure out what breeds we have... which is how I found BYC! I've been googling trying to figure out what breeds we have. I was really hoping for some easter eggers, but it doesn't look like we have any. The hatchery didn't have a huge list of breeds, so we have narrowed our options down to these: our yellow chicks could be either Amber Sex Link or California Grey Leghorn; our striped chicks could be either Golden or Silver Laced Wyandottes (or maybe easter eggers, but I can't seem to find anything to help me figure that one out); and our black chicks are either Jersey Giants or Australorps (small chance that there could be a couple Black Sex Links but it doesn't seem likely).

    Greetings from Kansas, BTinks, and [​IMG]! Great to have you with us! Happy you entered the wonderful world of chicken keeping! I agree with Sumi - wait a bit and post some pics - they are a little young to be definitive on the guesses - good luck to you!
