    Now that my chicks are 2 weeks old is it easier to tell the breed they are?

    The person I got them from their flock consists of Rhode Island Reds, Black sex links, Buff Orpingtons, White Leghorns, and Araucana Americana’s.

    The yellow chicken came out of a cream color egg.

    The all black one came out of a dark brown egg.

    The black and white one came out of green egg.

    Could you please tell me what they are? Also can you tell the gender?

    Thank you

    I'd say the top 2 are EE's, and the bottom 2 are black Australorps. Don't know what the middle one is though...

    I'm assuming their flock is mixed? Do you know what breed the rooster is?

    I'm not at all sure about the first one. I'd guess part Leghorn because of it's build and the fact that it came from a lighter egg.

    The solid black could be 1/2 BSL 1/2 EE. Total guess there.

    The black and white must be at least 1/2 Easter Egger if it came from a green shell.
