    I bought these new babies today and I have tried to research to find out what breed they are. I have come up with a few idea's but would like to know if anyone knows for sure. Thanks a bunch.[​IMG]

    The one with the stripe down the back looks like an Easter Egger. Look at the green feet.

    Yes I do see that now. I got so excited about getting them that I have missed so much. While looking at that one I noticed that the lightest colored one has feathers on it's feet. And in these breeds is there any way to tell the sex is yet and I am also not sure how old they are.

    I don't have a guess - but I think you have a nifty looking mix. If the suggestions of Easter Eggers, Barred Rock and now maybe a feather footed (cochin or brahma maybe??) would be right you'd have a laying flock I'd love to have myself. [​IMG] Enjoy!!

    Hmmm, I see ibuprofen is on sale for $2.99. I must go get some! [​IMG]

    I can't help ID your babies but they are very cute! I can hardly wait till mine arrive.

    the one with a stipe on its back is an EE, the black one is a BR, and the light one with feather feet posobly a light brahma... that my guesses. [​IMG]

    That black with the barred wings and headspot could also be a Dominique if it has a rose comb rather than a single comb-couldn't see the comb in the pics. The eyeliner chick appears to be an Easter Egger and the feather legged one looks like a Lt Brahma, possibly, but with sparse leg feathering, like many hatchery Brahmas, mine included.

    I got the chicks from an amish feed store and I looked at the list of chicks that he ordered I don't remember seeing Brahmas on there that is what I have now nor did I see Dominiques which is what I thought I have one of. However after looking at the comb on my hen and comparing her to pics on here I am thinking maybe she isn't a dominiue but when we bought her that is what they said she was now I am totally LOST! [​IMG]




    Well I went out and took pics of the hens I have maybe ya'll can let me know if she is a Dominiue or not and help me out on the rest as well. Atleast two I think are Brahma's and I have one that looks the same but has no feathering on her feet. As far as the roo and the two white hens I have no idea. Thanks to everyone for all of the help as you can see I am just learning but I am trying.[​IMG]
