    Got to love fall chick days at Atwoods. Just stopped in to pickup some adult chicken feed and looked in the bins. To my surprise I saw in the straight run bins 7 Egyptian fayoumis. I grabbed them and then 5 more that I'm not sure what breed on. 3 of some grayish chicks with brown stripes and 2 sparrow looking. Here are some pics:[​IMG]

    These could be Welsummers, Speckled Sussex, or Easter Eggers.

    The others could also be leghorns, phoenix, or several others in addition to the ones suggested by junebuggena. You'll most likely have to wait until they are 1-2 months old to determine breed on those.

    Splash Laced Red Wyandottes and any of several possibilities. Cute chicks!

    I believe they are too light colored for welsummers, and they do not have and muffs or beards for Easter Eggers ( I hatch a few of these out naturally every year). I'm thinking silver duckwing Phoenix.

    As for the other ones I was thinking some kind of wyndotte. Had thought Columbian at first.

    I've got some clean faced Easter Eggers. The fluffy cheeks are not guaranteed.

    I stand corrected. I didn't know that. Thanks
