    We bought some hen chicks at the local feed store and we really only know what 2 of them are (Americaunas). They're all sweet and beautiful. Here is the link to the flickr pics. Comment here or there with your educated guess. Thanks! Here is one of them:

    Update: we went last night and purchased a Dom.
    I think the other black one is a Ancona. This one:

    Now after reading all of the posts I wonder if some of them are EE!

    At 2 weeks it's funny how some have prominent tail feathers and some don't. Any comment on that? Or does it have to do with some maturing faster than others?

    They are soooo cute and affectionate!

    Anyone have any guesses? You can comment on flikr or here, whichever is more convenient. Thanks!

    I wish there was a website that asked you 20 questions to give you a breakdown of what your chickens could be.

    Waddle color
    Leg color
    feather color at chick age
    feather color at adult
    beak style
    rump style

    Anyone know of a website?
