    I bought these little guys from TCS and they seemed uncertain which kind they were due to labeling when they arrived. I think they are fairly common so it should be an easy one for the pros on the forum. 6 chicks total but 2 different breeds. [​IMG][/IMG]

    My best guess for the black chick/s would be a barred rock. I am not sure for the others, they seem reddish in the picture, and if they are I would guess Rhode island red. These are my best guesses, never 100% sure.

    Could you get individual pictures? The black one with a white dot is a Barred Rock.

    Thank you for ID on the black speckled ones. The others are a reddish blonde with a red tip of their beak, new to posting here with phone so apologies in advance if I do so incorrectly [​IMG]

    Does it have "puffy" cheeks? If so it is probably an Easter Egger.
