    My SO have recently started our flock over we only had Rhode Island Reds before, anyways we did the not so smart thing and went to a not well know hatchery and now I'm unsure of what breed of chicks we actually got. I chose Golden Comets, Buckeye's (we're in Ohio,) EEs, Speckled Sussex, and what we were told are Araucana. I'm pretty sure the EEs, Buckeyes, and Golden Comets are they actually breed the Speckled Sussex and Araucana are what I'm suspect on. I'm starting to think my Speckled are maybe EEs as well and my Araucana are Barred Rocks or EEs as well. As babies the Speckled had the little chipmunk stripe and the Araucana's looked like a Barred Rock chick and or an Araucana chick. However, now their getting their feathers their patterns seem unusual to me. The Araucana do have the sleet colored feet with yellow bottoms, and they do not have a defined rumple like my other chicks, but to me it looks like they have some tail feathers. Any info and help is appreciated, TIA.

    The red and white one(s?) = red sex link pullets (female)
    The black and white(s?) = barred rock
    Your "araucana" = Easter Egger
    I'm not seeing Speckled Sussex in the photos shown

    Can you get a clear photo of the bird in between the two barred rocks (not the red sex link) in the second photo and showing at the bottom of the third and fourth photos?

    With the green leg that can be seen (though blurry) in one picture? That is an EE

    These are a little bit better, the darker "Speckled that is more dark brown than the lighter chick, wasn't having it lol.

    Dark speckled has green legs just like the lighter one = both Easter Eggers. Speckled Sussex would be feathered differently and, more importantly, have white legs. I have two 5 week old SS out in the coop right now but just looked through all my pictures and have none that show one in a good clear shot, specifically the legs, but can get a pic tomorrow if you like

    thank you. it is sooo hard to tell and my pictures aren't the best. The legs look like a slate color to me with yellow on the bottom, the other two have complete slate legs, but I definitely suspected EEs or BRs. But I'm pretty sure they are EEs. I would love to see pictures of your SS, because I will probably eventually add some to my flock, I really had my heart set on them.
