    We are new to raising chickens. We can't figure out what breeds these chicks are. We did have 1 die in the first few days and we ordered with a friend. We may have 2 of one breed. The breeds we ordered are an Andalusian, Black Star, Barred Rock, and an Australorp. I put two pictures of the first chick because of the head spot which makes me think he/she is the Barred a Rock. Thanks for any help!

  2. I put what I THINK they are next to the picture. Just re-ask the question in the What Breed Or Gender Is This? Section of the forum! Good luck!

    And what kind of Andalusian did you order, because typically they are blue, and I see no blue chick(s) so..

    Thanks! Your thoughts are what I thought. We have this gray chick that may be the Andalusian. [​IMG]

    Is the head on that gray chick really reddish in color?

    They marked the heads with a red dot so we knew which order was mine and which was my friend's order. Thanks! We only ordered 1 Barred Rock and I thought there may be 2.

    Hi, the first one looks like a Barred Rock and the third one looks like an Australorp.
