    I bought my second batch of chicks from a feed store a couple weeks ago and would love help identifying! I remember they seemed common when the sales clerk pointed the breeds out on a poster, but with three kids anxious to get our new babies home, I didn't retain the names! I know we have a female barred rock and two buff orpingtons, one of which I am afraid is a roo due to his slow feather development compared to the rest. I *think* the red one is a red star. I would love the name of the black and white chick and the brown striped one
    I remember the black and white chick is all black in adult form. Thanks for your help! (Sorry for the bad photo, they are terrified of my camera)[​IMG] [​IMG]

    The white and black one is definitely an australorp. I'm 95% sure the brown striped one is a speckled sussex, and the red one could be a red star as you said, or maybe rhode island or new hampshire red, or sex link. Blonde ones maybe buff orpington? I have no idea about the other black one im sorry

    The other one looks like a Barred Rock or male BSL. The black with white dot on its head.
