    EDIT EDIT: I'm so sorry to say but my babies died yesterday while I was at school. The heat got to them, I have others but only the two I bought from the farmer man died so I assume it was his fault, for not taking better care of the babies he sold to me, I will not buy anymore from him and I think after having these babes for 3 days and them dying is terrible, I think they might have been sick when I got them. Thank god I take care of my chickens and it was a shock to find them in their cage like that. I cried for hours. My mom barried them. RIP sickly? baby chicks. [​IMG]

    Well these are my newest girls, Brookelynn and (unnamed) ... I was wondering what color you guys think they are? I guessed partridge rock on the smaller chick:

    EDIT: The white one IS a hen, its just hard to show you guys pictures. There isn't a single bit of pink on the comb or waddles, the personality also says says they are both hens + the reaction/reaction tests are awesome and they rarely fail. (swoosh hand across cage, hens sit - roo's stand and watch ... both babies sit when scared, tell me that makes one of them a rooster, its simply not true) Nice try though, I've sexed many many baby chicks and done it the right way [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    al6517: I'm not sure, I bought them from a farmer and sexed them myself. Apparently they are purebreds of his chicken trios...he has over 30 different breeds ... so they can be just about anything.
    MagicPigeon: They are there, what browser are you using? here's one of the URLs:link

    IDK on the partridge bird other than that the leg color looks wrong for a Rock. The black & white one appears to have EE legs and rusty red splotches emerging on his back.

    I'm sorry but there's a lot of misinformed "breeders" out there - Your birds aren't all purebred. [​IMG] The black and white one is an Easter Egger (mutt, the farmer probably thought as his hatchery source told him that they're Ameraucanas) Also, it's a boy.


    The brown and black one is likely a Partridge Rock. (purebred [​IMG] )

    The black and white one has a single comb, no beard or muffs, so not sure it's an EE, even with green legs. Probably just a mutt chicken of some sort.
