    Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum but very excited about my new hobby! [​IMG] Here are some pictuers of our chicks. We have 11 girls (a brown-egg laying assortment), 1 roo (a silver wyandotte), and 1 'mystery' chicken. If you can tell what these chicks are, let me know b/c I'm still guessing!

    This is when they first arrived:

    Getting used to their new home... (It's an old rabbit cage I had that they are quickly growing out of!

    I was thinking the yellow one is a BO, but what is the one on the left?

    Our pekepoo, Jolee, trying to figure out what the heck they are!

    One of the friendly ones... Is it a RIR?

    My babies are only 6 days old and they're already feathering! I love this chicks coloring... but what breed is she?
    [​IMG]

    I hope the black and white one is a barred rock, any ideas?

    A cute one... they're so curious!

    The RIR loves the camera!

    We have some with the stripes that look like quail, believe those are EE's

    The black and white one looks like a barred rock to me. I have 7. Here's a pic of ours when they were just a few days old.

    The chipmunk looking ones here are EEs.

    Hope that helps! Enjoy them while they are young because it doesn't last long. My girls are now 16wks old!!

    The one in the pic with the leopard looking spots on her face is a Golden Campine. They lay white eggs.

    Oh! I get all excited when I see someone new to the hobby having such fun.
    It looks like you have a perky and healthy bunch of babies there - have fun!
    And heed Judymae's advice - the chick stage doesn't last long, so take time off work, let the house get dirty, and play with your babies!

    Looks like you have some EE's, a Buff Cochin, possible Partridge Cochins and the black one with the dot on his/her forehead. We had Black Sex Link males that looked just like that. Hoping that's now the case for you. The golden red looking one looks like either a RIR or a NHR. My NHR looked just like that. Either way you have some beautiful babies there and I want to welcome you to the BYC family. You're in for a great ride.

    I think you guys are right... they definitely grow up quick! I'm pleading newbie-ignorance here, what is an EE? I'm looking through the list of what variety the chicks were supposed to be and can't figure out what and EE is. Another question is which one could be my silver wyandotte rooster? [​IMG]

    The striped ones don't have green legs so I don't think they are EE's. They look more like GLW's since you did get a brown egg layer assortment. Actually, the darker ones look like GLW's and the black ones with spots on their heads are for sure barred rocks. What were the possible breeds in the brown layer assortment. That may help.

    Edit: GLW= golden laced wyandotte.

    My babies are only 6 days old and they're already feathering! I love this chicks coloring... but what breed is she?

    She looks just like my Americana chick...

    I will find a photo of mine and post it for you!!

    Here is what she will look like once feather if she is an Americana.
