    Just got these a few days ago and was wondering if I could get a verification on them. Though some I know for sure.

    Yellow legs, was in the EE batch but I'm 90% sure it's a Buff Orp chick.

    The dark one is indeed an EE, green legs and all. The white, was labeled as a California White but lacks the dark blotches by the wings so I'm thinking it's just a White Leghorn.

    This should be a Gold Lace Wyandotte. The wing feather tips that are coming in are splashed with a goldish white.

    Also, just to verify, at 6 weeks they move out to the coop, correct? Though with the warm weather here in KY, sooner would be alright, yes?

    No matter though.. I've still got to build the coop and run.. :hmm

    Let me begin by saying that by NO MEANS am I terribly knowledgeable as I have just started on my chicken adventure. Now on to what I wanted to say: The last chick doesn't look much at all like my GLW chicks, which came from a local breeder. Whatever they are, they're cute!!! [​IMG]

    ETA: I want to come chick-nap your EE chick!!! It's beautiful!!

    Well the last one looks like a barred rock to me, with the white spot on the top of its head. Are you sure the Dark EE isnt crested, maybe its just the picture, but It looks like it may be a golden laced polish. Then again, maybe I am just looking too hard! [​IMG]

    LOL.. Yeah, they are cute for sure.

    All in all it doesn't matter what they are.. My main concern is ending up with more than one roo. These were all bought from the pullet bins, but you never know what might get switched around and end up where.

    Quote:You may be right about the one being a barred rock.. Looks alot like one.. Hmm.. Either way they're stunningly beautiful so I'd be happy with that for sure.

    Not sure about the EE.. No crest for sure though. Her wing feathers coming in are a nice warm brown with muttled dark spots along the edge and she is dark legged with a greenish tinge.

    I'll snap a few better pictures and put some up soon.
