    Just wondering if anyone can help me on the breeds of these chicks?

    I have two of these black ones:

    Buff one:

    I think this is an EE:

    RIR or NHR?

    EE?

    This one looks to have more of a yellow leg than the other chipmunk-marked ones:

    The 3 of the packing peanuts (i have two more that look just like the second one):

    okay, what's with the green on the head?? aren't they a little young to be dying hteir feathers... lol...

    i'm no help with the id, but saw the green on a couple and was wondering if it was something the hatchery did or if the baby got a hold of a marker...

    first one looks like a Barred Rock,
    second one looks like a buff orpington or buff minorca (you can't really tell the difference until their earlobes come in)
    last one could be a silver laced wyandotte, but I'd have to see the back to tell for sure.

    Can you get pictures of their backs? Sometimes the back markings are very important to IDing the breed.

    Sure, I will get pics of the backs.

    As far as the green markings, they marked the "packing peanuts" (extra roos for warmth) so I would know which was which. Everyone is very active (and noisy) and doing great!!

    Will update with back pictures in the next few mins...

    Ok here are pictures of the back sides:

    The SLW?:

    The 3 identical roos (they do not have green legs so I'm assuming they are a breed of something and not EE's):

    I can't help to much but say I don't think that is a SLW.

    RIRs, BRs, Buff Orps or Min, and a bunch of EEs

    EEs can have any leg color and be with or without beards/muffs

    ETA: Don't think #6 is an EE though... But can't think of the breed right off hand that is trying to come to mind.

    I was afraid of that- though the chipmunk marked one with the yellow legs could be a welsummer or brown leghorn right?

    Yeah probably... Not Welsummer but probably brown Leghorn

    You'll have a beautiful flock and a very pretty rainbow of eggs...
