    Hmm...hard to say. There's alot of birds that look like that. I would guess maybe speckled sussex because I think I see some white coming in.

    Thank you! this is my first time with chicks and I am so excited to have any at all that it doesn't even really matter to me what they are.
    I have 6 all together and they are 11 days old. I have 3 silkies, a barred rock (the only one of my incubated eggs that hatched) the one in the picture and one other questionable (I think it might be a buff of some kind). Here is a picture of that one today, (it found a worm to play with).

    Definitely a Speckled Sussex. :) The other chick looks like a red sexlink to me.
