    Hello this is my first post I've been reading for awhile and thanks to all of you i have successful flock. Now my wife has found she loves chickens so much so when i came home from work i had 16 new chicks she bought at tractor Supply. The problem is i don't know the breeds that most of them are so i figured with all the knowledge on this site mAybe if i post some Pics that someone may have an idea what breeds i have. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Here are my guesses (just guesses!)

    1 could be a dark brahma. Are those feathers on its legs? Does it have a pea comb?
    2 could be anything barred: a rock, a cuckoo marans, dominique, or sex-link roo
    3 is probably either a brahma or cochin, depending on its comb (brahmas have pea combs, cochins have single)
    4 looks like a production red
    5 looks like a blue-laced red wyandotte
    6 looks like an easter egger.

    You're going to have a colorful flock!

    Ok, it might just be me, do the chicks in pictures 1 2 3 and 5 looks to have really puffy feet?

    Maybe someone else could have a look.
