    They thought they were hatching guineas but ended up with some chicks in the mix. I ended up with all of them including the 3 chicks. One I am fairly certain is a black maran (not sure on that spelling) because I am familiar with the flock they came from. One of them I am told may be an araucana and we have no clue on the other. Does anyone have any guesses on what I have?

    Idk if you can see it but this is the one we think is araucana because she has little puffs on the side of her head.

    I'll be the first to say I'm not that good at telling when they are that young...but the second set of pictures looks just like our EE's did when they were that tiny.

    Pretty chicks you acquired!

    This is our big mystery. It looks a lot like my speckled sussex chicks did but he doesn't have any of them.

    I'm excited! I wasn't planningon keeping them but they are too pretty. I'm just going to have to place the guineas somewhere else. I wasn't sure if I wanted to mix them or not in the coop and that just gave me my answer.

    Both of the wild type (striped down back) chicks can be Ameracauna, or Easter eggers (much more common and come with more color variation)

    Knowing what breeds were in the flock, and genders of those breeds, would sure help a lot.....

    He has black maran, araucana, easter eggers, silver laced wyandotte, orpington, barred plymouth rock, and 1 or 2 more that I can't think of. I have no clue what kind of roosters he has.
