    Hi I'm Jaime and I just got my baby chicks a week ago, and this is my first time raising chickens, I am beyond thrilled! I really love these little birds! I have a Barred Rock, a Buff Orpington, an Ameraucana, a Rhode Island Red, and a Light Brahma. :) Since I got them on the feed stores yearly "chick day" it was a zoo and I couldn't tell you which chick is which breed! Hopefully we will start to recognize as they get older.[​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    I think --
    Ruby - RIR
    Charlotte - Barred Rock
    Snowball - Brahma
    Goldie - Buff Orp
    Messy - actually an Easter Egger, a mixed breed that may lay a blue egg (sometimes called Ams by hatcheries, but not purebreds).

    Have fun!

    Greetings from Kansas, garden chick, and [​IMG]! Great to have you with us! I concur with 1muttsfan about the breeds you have. Great pics, btw, and I love the name "Messy!" Best of luck to you in your chicken odyssey.
