I ordered 3 Speckled Sussex pullets from my local feed store and picked up the chicks 4 days ago. They order from Cackle Hatchery. Since I am brand new to raising chickens, I need help identifying the chicks. I am pretty sure they are not Speckled Sussex. Can anyone help me identify the breeds?

I don't know what that is but it's not a speckled Sussex . it's carrying the eb (brown ) allele because it has a brown helmet on its head. Speckled Sussex are based on the Wheaten (eWh) or the wild-type (e+) allele , neither of which result in a brown helmet.
