    Im a teacher & our classroom successfully incubated & hatched 3/3 eggs. Now I’m wondering what kind of chicks they are. They hatched 4/21. We will be observing the chicks for a few weeks, then I’ll be giving them back to the parent that gave us the eggs.

    waving.gif Well, so many breeds look very similar as chicks. The gold ones look like some sort of production red (RIR, red star) and the 2nd is something blue... maybe sapphire gem or blue andalusion, but I could be totally wrong! What color were the eggs? Does the person who donated the eggs know what they were? Enjoy those cuties while they're little!

    Hello and welcome to BYC - it’s great that you have joined us. Please make yourself at home. It will take some time before the chicks are at an age where they can be identified.

    This is a useful link of “How to” BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3. I’d suggest including your location using the guide in the link. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.

    Best wishes

    No problem. Post photos and age at "what breed or gender is this." the good folks there will sort it out for you.

    Plus, WELCOME TO BACKYARD CHICKENS :wee

    Welcome to BYC!:frow

    Feel free to ask questions, there are so many wonderful and knowledgeable people who will answer them :)

    Good luck with your new (very adorable) chicks!

    The brownish-black one looks like an olive egger, and I agree with FlappyFeathers that the top ones look like some type of RIR. I still recommend asking the What Breed or Gender is this? thread, they are a lot more experienced with breeds than I am. :)
