    The first might be a buff orpington, but it looks a little too dark compared to mine, at least, as seen in my avatar. (but someone else in another thread was saying that a chick of that color matched their own buff orpingtons, so who knows?!)

    The second is definitely an easter egger. It looks exactly like my easter egger chicks.

    I agree with the first one being BO but the second ones legs don't look like an EE to me. Could you get a front shot of her?

  5. The top one looks like it may have some striping going on down the back, I believe it's a red sex link.
    Second is def. an EE.

    Quote:I didn't notice the strip, but now that I have looked closer, I would like to change my vote.
     
  7. Quote:Do you mean in color they don't look EE to you?
    True Ameracuanas are supposed to have green or olive legs I believe but Easter Eggers are different and can have any number of colorings...
    I have several 1 week old EE chicks in my brooder now that do not have green legs. [​IMG]

    if your TSC gets their chicks from Privett like mine does then the first one is a golden sex link

    Yeah, I was thinking the legs would be green or willow tinted on an EE.

    **Not every chipmunk striped chick is an EE!**

    The first one is a Golden Sexlink (Golden Comet) and the second one is a BB Red OEGB.
