    We got some new chicks, the feed store had them 2 for 1 so i tossed the idea of having my girls raise their own out the window. I am pretty sure 4 of them are Araucana they have the puffy cheeks. But they had these black and white/yellow ones and I know they are not Rhode Island Reds, since the sign said they only had those two breeds I have no idea what they are. Any help would be great.

    The "Auraucana" are Easter Eggers. The black chicks could be a couple of different breeds - is that white wing feathering on the last picture or?

    Yes, they are most likely easter eggers. It's hard to tell what kind of comb the black ones have, if it's a pea comb, they are most likely a EE as well.

    The black ones are likely Black Australorps, as that is a common black breed.

    Yes the black chicks have white wing feathers and very tiny combs, one is much fluffier then the other, I am hoping this is not a male / female trate as I am not supposed to have roo's.
