I've got 18 chicks that need breed identification. If you can guess gender on the older ones that's great but it's not a must at the moment. I'd also like to know what color they might be when older. These first 5 chicks are almost 3 weeks old. I was told the black ones are Cuckoo Marans but I'm not certain. The other two are completely unknown. CHICK #1: Lighter colored than the other two blacks. Started getting feathers before the other two and has tail feathers growing in rapidly. No black wash on the legs. CHICK #2: Dark black. Does have black wash on the front of the legs. Doesn't have hardly any tail feathers at all. CHICK #3: I'm really unsure about this one. It's color is in-between the other two. Barely has a slight black wash on just the top of it's legs. Name is Big Mama (or Daddy) CHICK #4: I'm fairly certain this might be a roo. It's comb is very orange as well as it's legs are very orange. It's comb is much much larger than the others it's age. It tends to really check things out and investigate. When feeding treats it tends to sit back and let the others eat and then comes in towards the end. Has also "mock fought" with Chick #1 whom I suspect may be a roo also. Does have a good bit of tail feathering. CHICK #5: Looked like a chipmunk when it was younger. Nothin special about the legs. Does have a good bit of tail feathering. Also got it's feathers more rapidly than some of the others. UPDATE: Saw the lady who gave the chicks to me and she said she thinks he came from one of the eggs her mom gave her and she had some Phoenix's. After looking at pics of phoenix chicks on the internet I'm pretty darn sure she's right. So now it's just roo or pullet? CHICK #6, 7, 8, 9, 10 Buff Orpingtons. Just thought I'd throw their picture in here. lol The breed choices for the chicks below are: [*]Assorted colors of Bantum Cochins [*]Assorted colors of Bantum d'Uccles CHICK #11: Not a whole lot to say about this one other than it has a dark spot on it's head. CHICK #12: Not a whole lot to say about this one other than it's head is slightly darker than the rest of it. CHICK #13: Has gotten wing feathers in pretty rapidly. They seem to have a peachy color on the tips? CHICK #14: This little guy is gettin wing feathers pretty fast. They seem to have a greyish tint to them. CHICK #15: Has black markings in the feathers. Looks like it may have a beard or ear muffs? CHICK #16: This one is a peach color but looks to have some black or grey under-feathers (or whatever they're called) that gives it a shaded look. The wing feathers are coming in peachy colored. CHICK #17: This chick and the one below it remind me of little penguins. Their heads are black, bodies are grey and they have black chipmunk stripes. This chick is darker grey than the one below and it's stripes are more pronounced. Name is Gwen. CHICK #18: This chick also reminds me of a little penguin. Head is black, body is grey, black chipmunk stripes. This chick is lighter than the chick above. Name is Pen.
