    We picked up 6 chickens a few weeks ago, I was told there are 3 different breeds, but who is who? I think they are ~6 weeks old

    I am thinking rooster? it has blue legs.

    The top one might be a Black Australorp too, but I'm not sure about that.

    The breeds I should have got were Orpington, Wyandotte and Ameraucana... now to decide which rooster to keep[​IMG] I don't think EE are very common here.

    They all look like cockerels to me.
    1. Black orpington or australorp
    2. Ameraucana or Easter Egger. This one could be a pullet. Need more photos/side view
    3. Golden laced Wyandotte
    4. Australorp

    Those are my guesses. I've never had orpingtons as babies so I don't know how they look compared to young australorps. 1 and 4 could be either.

    Thank you for the replies! 3/6 rooster... I don't think that ratio will work?
