    HI, I"m a newbie mom. I ordered 5 different kinds of chicks about a week ago. Here is my problem. Can you tell me what colors these breeds should be? I asked the farm store to tell me and I thought it was right....until they started getting feathers. I ordered

    2 black Australorps - I'm guessing these are my totally black chicks with just a hint of silvery white on the tummy

    2 Easter Eggers- These I am pretty sure are my brown weird looking ones. lol They dont look all one color..sort of an all shades of brown mix mostly light and medium

    2 Silver laced Wyandottes- I looked at some pictures on here and they match my black chicks that have silver stripes down their back and a patchy looking face

    but then I ordered 2 isa brown and 2 buff orpingtons My problem is I have light tanishy-yellow chicks and yellow chicks. I thought my yellows were the buff and my slightly tanish were the isa browns..but now that the feathers are coming in my slightly tanish are buff winged and my yellow are white! Do they change color or regrow to darker or did I end up with a mix up and get buff and possibly white rocks?

    my pictures arent good that I took but I can get new ones if needed.

    I'm not an "eggspert", but it sounds like you got your order correct. I had an all white chick that sprouted out white baby feathers and then went all red later on. She was a red star.

    The more I look at baby pics the more I think maybe they should have been brown/red babies...[​IMG]

    I dont know..I cant find many isa brown baby pics anywhere on the net. I have looked at buffs and they look just like my two tanishyellowy chicks.

    I just hope your right and they will turn brown...I love them even if they turn white. I guess I could go look at the store and see if they have isa browns labeled on a tank and see what they look like.
