    I hatched out some assorted brown egg layers and was wondering what breed they might be. See pics below.

    All I can say for certain is that the big brown chick in the first photo is a duck. :)

    Also, the two in the center/second photo are almost certainly Speckled Sussexes.

    The goldies could be Red Star. Can't say for certain, though.

    I'd like to see a face on photo of the bird next to the duck, please. Also, what hatchery are they from?

    Please help me identify what the above chick is? Bought her from an assortment Bantem batch at TSC. No feathered feet.


    I bought another few bantems today that had exactly the same color features. The only difference is they have feathered shanks. Any idea of what the difference is between the chick with and without feathered shanks in terms of breed? Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the chick with feathered shanks yet.

    The above chick is a blueish gray in color also from a batch of bantem straight run.

    too young. Post new photos when they are 6-8 weeks old, and fully feathered out.

    Hey cockfarmer. Your first one looks like a black sex link.
