    I will start by saying that I'm new raising chickens & loving it! My first purchase was 16 week old pullets last May. Last weekend, attended a local sale and purchased one week old chicks and am wondering if I purchased what I was told.... Can anyone tell me what breed these are? I was told that the dark ones were Fayoumis but they have different colored legs and beaks and do not look like the ones that I've seen online. Is the different beak thing common? [​IMG]

    The light colored ones were sold as Golden Campines. Also, the dark ones have tails that are almost one inch long already and the largest light one has a tail.

    It's hard to tell by the pictures, but I would repost individual pictures of each in another month or so.

    Thank you to the first three posts! I wasn't sure if they were too young too determine the breed; but I do agree, they are beautiful! I will post again in a couple of weeks. Thanks!
