    Well, I picked up some banties from TSC when I went in to buy chicken feed (I knew I should have sent someone else! Baby chicks are like candy!).

    2 of the chicks I've identified as Golden Sebrights. Soooo pretty. The other three, however, are a little harder for me to identify. So I was looking for a little help [​IMG]

    The first chick is a chipmunk-looking thing, calm as can be.

    I figure it's a fairly common breed, just like my Sebrights. Maybe an EE?

    This one I'm super-curious about. It's beautiful, and the wing feathers that are coming in are white-tipped and slate gray.

    The last little guy looks similar to the silver, except he's black instead.

    I'd love for some hints. These guys are only a week or so old, so I figure they'll get more distinctive and identifiable the older they get. I've got high hopes out of my black and silver duo! [​IMG]

    It is hard to tell color exactly cause the pick is dark but the first one is an OEG. I have 3, and the color is probably black breasted red. [​IMG] Doesn't have the green legs or muff to be an EE. Mine are very sweet, especially my crele colored roo!

    I hope so; a black breasted red would be sooo pretty.

    Those bottom 2 look like something mottled, but I can't decide what.
