My nephew has three new chicks that he can't identify. I have been trying to identify them for him, but am stumped!

I think that the first one is an EE, but not sure what the second one is. I took pictures of their feet too, hoping this would help! My EE's have a green tint to their feet which is why I am not sure if they are EE's or not.

Thanks for the help!!!!

From my understanding all the EEs have green legs, although some are much darker and greener than others. The light ones could be EEs or even my welsummers looked like that also. And the black one could be an australorp or a black orpington or even a black jersey giant. We have had all three of those black ones in the last month, and I have a hard time telling them apart. If they hadn't of been hatched at different times, I would be in trouble LOL! Good luck!

I hadn't thought of Welsummers'??? The other thing I failed to mention is that they have more of a "puffy" head then other chicks we have had (ie. BO, SLW, RIR). Does this make sense????

The eyeliner chick doesn't look anything like a Welsummer, more like a Silver Campine, Buttercup or Phoenix chick, but not really sure. Does the black one have a spot on top of the head? If not, it is not a Barred Rock.

I will look up both the Silver Campine and Phoenix chicks. The black one DOES NOT have a spot on the top of its head. The top is totally black. Any ideas???
