    I'm a chicken noob and need help to identify these 3 week old chicks (all are supposed to be hens). The two have pretty distinct markings but the white one doesn't. Thanks for your help, this is a great site. [​IMG]

    I don't know what they are, but they look like hens so far. The ones in the 2nd picture are not easter eggers, they don't have green legs, beards, muffs, or a pea comb. There are tons on chipmunk chick looking breeds, or they could be a mix. Show us pictures in a couple of weeks to get a better idea of breed and gender. Cuties though!
