    So I got the Brown Egg Layer Assortment of pullets from Meyer Hatchery. The pictures are blurry cell phone pictures, but hopefully clear enough!

    This chick kind of has a chipmunk stripe on the back. There are several like this!

    Very pretty reddish chick. There is a faint black spot on the head.

    And a little black chick. I know it isn't an australorp. Black Jersey Giant?

    The second chick is a production red.
    The Black chick is a barred rock.
    I am not 100% sure on the chipmunk colored chicks since there are SO many breeds with that coloration as chicks.

    Congrats on the chicks! They are adorable!

    I agree!

    The messy spotted one looks like it might be a Wyandotte. Does it have a messy face that kind of looks like a mask? If so, then that's what you have.

    Does your chipmunk chick have chipmuck cheeks, or regular cheeks? Big poofy cheeks is indicative of an EE.​

    The first one looks a bit like a gold laced wyandotte.

    I'm going to say:

    GLW
    Red sex link (orange stripes down the back)
    Not sure
    Barred Rock, Cuckoo Marans or Male black sex link. (most likely BR)

    So one is a barred rock and one is a production red, awesome! I guess I won't know if the first is a GLW until she gets older! Same with the third one that is kind of unknown. I've gone through feathersite, and haven't seen anything that really seems like a match!

    I hope I got no easter eggers, actually. That is why I got the brown egg layer specific assortment instead of a different assortment. Since I am going to have some purebred araucanas in the coop (if my hatch goes OK), the only blue eggs I want are theirs [​IMG]
