    Got six new pullet chicks today from tractor supply. Three look like this:

    Any guesses on what they could be? I'm thinking the darker ones are either Welsummer or Brown Leghorn, time will tell but the red ones have me stumped. They are much darker than my Golden Comets were as chicks.

    I also got two Bantams that look like miniature versions of the darker chicks and 4 more silkies, a white, a black and two porcelain(??) Love getting new babies!!!

    I'd vote hatchery Rhode Island Reds / Production Reds for the reddish chicks ... the browns do look like Brown Leghorns but so many breeds are that chipmunk looking as chicks what you get is always a surprise.

    The red ones look like hatchery Rhode Island Reds ("production reds"). The striped birds are probably Welsummers or Light Brown Leghorns (you'll know for sure when they get older, as Leghorns develop white earlobes and Welsummers get red earlobes).
