I have a few chicks that I got from the pullet bin at a local feed store and I haven't yet figured out what breed they are. If anyone can help me with this it would be greatly appreciated. Blue Andalusian
Anconoa or Exchequer Leghorn
Barred Plymouth Rock
I have a few chicks that I got from the pullet bin at a local feed store and I haven't yet figured out what breed they are. If anyone can help me with this it would be greatly appreciated. They are about 5 and a half weeks old now. Here are some pics. Blue Andalusian, probably a cockerel.
Silver Lakenvelder, not sure on gender but guessing pullet for now.
Black Sex-Link pullet.
Exchequer Leghorn or Ancona, not sure on gender.
Barred Rock pullet.
Buff Orpington pullet.
Here is another pic of a chick that I am not sure about. It was supposed to be an Australorp. I got it from a bin at the feed store on which the label said Australorp. There was, however, another label on the bin that said black broilers. I specifically asked about this to make sure they were Australorps because I did not want any meat birds. They said they were all Australorps. They just hadn't removed that label. I got 6 of them and they all look like Australorps except for this one. Can you all tell me if I am wrong and maybe this is just a weird looking really fast growing Australorp? Is it a broiler bird? I am thinking so because of how fast he is growing and because of the way the feathers are coming in slower than the others. Also the feathers that are coming in around the chest area have goldish red streaks in them. I don't think Australorps ever have that...or do they? Please help me figure this out. I appreciate it.
