    The red chick could be Rhode Island red or red leghorn. The striped ones could be any of several breeds but they kind of look like my golden laced Wyandotte chicks. These are just a guess. What were they supposed to be?[​IMG]

    Thanks! I got them from my pet chicken and they were just an assortment of brown egg layers!

    Chances are, the red one is a RIR then. Red leghorns lay white eggs. If I could see the front and belly of the striped chicks I might get a better idea what they are. Are there black chicks? They would be Australorp which is my all time favorite breed.[​IMG]
