    I just got my first chicks ever in the mail today. I am very pleased with the results, but I got a brown layer assortment and I have only a very vague idea of what breeds these chicks are. Can any of you help me? I know they're way too young to sex but are they too young to determine what breed they are? (Sorry for the pic quality, I only had my phone camera. [​IMG])
    Chick #1 (RIR?)

    Chick #3 and #4 (Silver and Golden Laced Wyandottes?)

    Chick #5 (No marks whatsoever)
    [​IMG]
    Chick #6, #7 and #8 (All the same breed?)

    Thanks in advance!

    The white ones could possibly RI Whites?

    I don't think they're RI Whites because I got them from MyPetChicken and they don't sell those. Thanks anyway! Any idea what #2 is? That's the one that has me really confounded. Also, Cochins have feathers on their legs correct? I was really hoping for some but, alas I have clean legged chicks.

    Also, if it helps the all-white is about an inch taller than all the others.
