Today I impulse bought 4 chicks at TSC (the rest of my flock is coming by mail this week). I believe I know one is a Barred Plymouth Rock (Chick A). The others I believe were incorrectly labeled. Chicks B and C were in the bin with Chick A which had labels for Starlight Green Eggers and Barred Plymouth Rocks. It seems that the SGE can vary in appearance, but none of the pics look like my chickies! Also, these 2 have slightly feathered feet which i didnt think SGE usually have? Chick D was in a bin labeled Rhode Island Red and Buff Orpington, but I dont suspect it is either. It also has feathered feet. 20210718_193759.jpg 20210718_193759.jpg 20210718_193745.jpg 20210718_193852.jpg 20210718_194138.jpg 20210718_194002.jpg 20210718_194032.jpg 20210718_194311.jpg 20210718_194232.jpg 20210718_194406.jpg

Anyone have any idea based on these sweet little chickie pics?!

A is either a BR or a Cuckoo Marans, depending on the color of the legs. Are they yellow or pink?
The other chicks look like either cochins ore brahmas. What kind of combs to they have?

I'm going to say brahmas for B, C and D. It's probably way to soon to see if they have a straight or a pea comb, but the coloring is more like brahmas than Cochins, especially Cochins from TSC. I've seen black, white, red, buff, silver laced, gold laced, partridge, but no Columbian, birchen it other Cochin color that is similar to Brahma colors.

I believe they are brahmas. I think the comb is a pea comb, as I have others (this BR inclided) with straight, single combs and these chicks are definitely different. These chickies are getting big FAST...much faster than the other chicks I've got
