    I picked up several feed store chicks, and so far I've been able to ID all but these two. Any ideas?

    Chick 1 was picked up from the bantam bin at TSC. She (please be a girl!) is a mixture of blue, white, yellow, and hints of red. She also appears to have rather puffy cheeks, and smooth legs. Maybe an Easter Egger?

    Chick 2 was picked up out of a straight run chick bin at a local feed store. I think they're supposed to be laying breeds, but "straight run chicks" could be about anything. "She" has very dark chipmunk stripes, and just look at those beautiful feathers coming in!

    I didn't even have the thought that's what it could be until I got home and saw the puffy cheeks! All the EE's I've had before have had dark chipmunk stripes, but I just can't think of anything else that would have puffy cheeks, pea comb, and clean legs... [​IMG]Anyone have any other ideas? OEGB?

    The first two are most likely EEs (which is a mix 'breed' anyway, so slate legs aren't a guarentee with them).

    The last looks like a gold laced wyandotte.

    That would make me extremely happy! I love EE's and I've been wanting a gold laced wyandotte for quite some time! [​IMG] Thanks for weighing in!

    CherieAmie - I purchased Gold Laced Wyandottes today at the local Rural King. Just FYI in case you have a RK near you :)

    I was thinking GLW on the second, too. I don't have any idea what the first is, but she is so beautiful! You should post pictures of her as she get older, keep us updated :)

    Thanks! I don't think we have one anywhere near us though. :( Do your chicks look like this one?
