    Hello Spring
    My Coop
    I received four lovely chicks from the kindergarten class after they hatched them for a project. I asked, but they didn't know what breeds the chicks actually were or what sex. I usually order them off line or pick them up at a feed store so I've never had to identify breeds or sex before. I have the pics of two of them that I will post below. Thank you a ton!

    Could you get better photos? #1 could be a Speckled Sussex or a Welsummer. #2 maybe a Silver Campine, I need better photos though.

    #1 Does it have "puffy" cheeks?
    #2 Looks like a possible barnevelder or GLW what type of comb does it have?
    #3 and #4 look like they are the same breed, do they have "puffy" cheeks as well? Could you get photos of them standing by themselves?
