    Hi, I just got my new babies, but I do not know which are which. Does anyone have any idea? The choices are Easter Egger, Speckled Sussex and Light Brown Leghorn. They were hatched on Oct. 1 . Thanks for any help.

    Thanks, Do you think Spice might be an EE too? I ordered two EEs, a Speckled Sussex, a Light Brown Leghorn and a Blue Andalasian. One chick died during shipment. It looked very similar to Rusty but more brown.

    Rusty is a speckled sussex
    Spice and Cinnamon are both EE's but it looks to me like Spice is going to be muffless - and I hate to say this - but Spice looks like a male chick to me. [​IMG]

    Ooh, I was hoping for a female because I was hoping for the pretty eggs.

    SS has white legs. Not gold and not slate, blue or green. Geez...to me the older Spice doesn't even look like the younger Spice! LOL!

    Rusty does look like a SS as others have said. Looks like our 3 did when we brought them home. Not sure of the others.

    I know Spice has really changed and is huge compared to the others. She/he has gigantic green feet and is much more feathered out.
