    I purchased chicks from the local feed store and the chicks came from a bin with all breeds mixed together. I picked one barred rock that I knew that's what it was but I have 3 chicks that I have no clue what they are. I was hoping someone would recognize what breed they are.

    Im going to throw out a guess of...... 1 being a red sex link and 2 and 3 being Black Australorps.

    2 and 3 are not Australorps. They look more like Ancona or Java chicks.

    If the feed store doesn't know you're going to have to wait till it's older... The feed store should know...

    I've seen many times Barred Rocks, and Buff Orpingtons together at feed stores in my area. But that's here.

    I'd say just ask feed store, if the person doesn't know then talk to someone there who knows. Somebody has to know. I bought a Brahma, Ameraucana, Buff Orpington, Barred Rock, and 2 Australorps from a breeder. I had to call her twice because I didn't know and then couldn't remember the breeds my kids picked out.

    The store bought a "hatchery pick" so they just sent a bunch of random chicks. I spoke to the ordering manager and she said she didn't know.

    They are maybe 5-6 days old. You will have to wait at least a month to sex the Javas.
