    I have 3 day old chicks and was hoping someone could help me with the breed. I purchased the eggs off of ebay and ordered an assorted pack. One is yellow, another all black and another black with white. I have attached pictures..hopefully you can see the pictures as this is my first time posting pictures.

    Thank you

    A little early to be sure. Once those black chicks start to get some wing feathers discerning breed will be easier. So at two weeks or so would be a better time for a more certain evaluation.

    I am moving this to the breed section where it will get more specific attention.

    I am going to say the black chicks are black amerecaunas (sp) and the red one is a RIR.
  4. I think the black chick is a cuckoo maran. It has yellow legs, on one, kind hard to see.

    I just found out that the person I bought the eggs from has a flock of the following....Rhode Island Reds, Black sex links, Buff Orpingtons, White Leghorns, Araucana Americana’s.....here are the color eggs my chicks came out of and what I think they could be now knowing his flock.....

    Yellow/reddish chick- a cream/white egg...RIR???

    Black and white chick- a greenish blue (easter) egg- Araucana Americana???

    All black chick- a brown egg- could it be a black sex link???
    Please advise.

    Thank you all again!

    The yellow chick is probably a leghorn if it came from a white egg. Rhode Island Red's lay brown eggs.
